Academic Intregity at the IA

We've been discussing putting more emphasis on the concept of academic integrity here at the IA. For the past several years we have had a turnitin.com account for all of our students. We've also had a few professional development sessions discussing plagiarism and academic integrity.

We were given a suggestion to read "Doing School: How We Are Creating a Generation of Stressed-Out, Materialistic, and Miseducated Students" by Denise Clark Pope.

There is also a small group of teachers going to Oakland University on Thursday, January 17 to listen to a lecture by Dr. David Callahan who is the author of "The Cheating Culture: Why More Americans Are Doing Wrong to Get Ahead. All are welcome to attend. More info here. Contact me if you would like more information at kjanek@bloomfield.org.

I'm sure there will be more of a discussion later on about this topic (after the lecture).
