My word!: Plagiarism and College Culture

£8.99

Product description

Used, very good condition, soft cover.
Today's college students seem to operate under an entirely different set of assumptions about plagiarism than do their professors. Practices that even a decade ago would have been universally regarded as academically dishonest are now commonplace. Some recent surveys show that more than 75% of students admit to having cheated, while 68% admit to using material from the Internet without citation. For Susan D Blum, this development is not a reflection of lowered ethical standards: rather, it is an indication of dramatic shifts in education and the larger culture. Dismissing simplistic condemnation in favour of a rich account of students actually think about education, accomplishment and originality, My Word! reveals two distinct cultures that exist, often uneasily, side by side in the classroom.
The book is in very good condition with just light scuffing to the cover ad very light bumping to the corners. The binding is sound and all the pages are clean and unmarked.
