Plagiarism Again

So far I have graded one final research paper for my Migration and Borders Class and found one case of blatant plagiarism. As in the entire paper from start to finish was lifted from the Internet. This is not a good start. I have 27 more research papers to grade for that class.

It was easy to know if a high-schooler plagiarized. If the writing was poor and was written with short, choppy sentences with no apparent structure; then they probably wrote it themselves. Anything that was pleasurable to read was plagiarized. It was sad.
