Busted is not something most people want to hear especially coming from the mouth of a teacher. Well now technology has become well-advanced, and it does not even take a teacher to catch a person cheating. Turnitin is a great website for teachers and students who are working on reports or completing assignments. Sometimes students even think they have done all their citations right, but the computer might find some glitches. I have used to website before for some of my classes. I do not usually use it unless it is required. I think it is useful for teachers, but I do not want to use it unless I see plagiarism becomes a problem in my classroom. I like to create a trusting relationship between me and my students, and I feel like some of the plagiarism software’s are just an easy way out for teachers.
I did like working on this project. It took me a pretty long time to figure everything out and work through the project. I usually just submit my work for a class and then move on, but this took much more work and detail. The first part was probably harder to me than the second. I had some problems finding information that I wanted to copy and paste. I guess I can say it’s a good thing to not be used to that. I wanted to change up what I found to make it sound a different way. For the second part, I tried not to look back at the document and just go off of what I remembered from the first glance in order to create my own response. I was a bit nervous to submit both parts because I did not want it to be wrong. I felt like I was submitting a test or something. I had some problems in the beginning figuring out my percentage, but I worked it out. Overall, this assignment was a great way for me to advance my technological skills for my classes and for my future.
