1. If you did not submit your paper 1 to Turnitin, you may do so until Friday, but there will be a significant grade penalty. Remember, your paper will get a a grade only if you (a) turn in a hardcopy and (b) submit it to Turnitin.
2. As I have said many times, students need to be familiar with the policies outlined in the syllabus. It is here: http://philosophy302.blogspot.com/2008/01/current-syl.html
3. A number of submitted papers are plagiarized. Here is some of what the syllabus says about that:
- If you submi
ta plagiarized paper (e.g., a paper you took in whole or in par tfrom the in terne tor some o ther illegi tima te source, such as a peer who has had this course before), the ins truc tor (wi th the help of Turni tin.com) will no tice this and you will then fail this course immedia tely. Al though we will discuss this, i tis your responsibili ty to know wha tplagiarism is.
- Here are some sugges
tions to avoid plagiarism: do no tcheck the in terne tfor any thing rela ted to your papers: ins tead use the tex ts required for the course and think for yourself; do no t take phrases from the tex ts; pu tall of your wri tings in your own words; do no tcu tand pas te any thing from the in terne tin to your paper; do no tvisi tWikipedia, an ex tremely unreliable source for academic philosophy; do no t take ar ticles from online encyclopedias; do no tvisi tonline dic tionaries
tuna tely some of the pin codes for the Turni tin are invalid. If you find tha t your pin code is no t regis tering properly ( the password is e thics and the course codes are above), they should con tac t Thompson.
