A high school student in my blogging group found a thought-provoking article entitled “Cheating Gets You Nowhere”.
Click on student papers.The article was written by a college student (T. J. Dougherty) and it
is listed on a page with numerous other articles. Some of the titles
may be inappropriate for students to read. I haven’t read all the other
articles but just the titles will be enough to cause concern. I
can’t get the link to go directly to the one article. If someone knows
the answer to that, that could solve the problem. I guess I could make
the paper into a pdf but then there are copyright issues, etc. A lot of
these articles would be of high interest to the students in the
blogging class. Some great discussions and blogging could result. And we are going to constantly come up to the problem
of periphereal inappropriate items (does that make sense?). How do we
pull some out and still not be right in the midst of other links that could cause uproars?
And we have to think about younger students who will be reading the high school student posts. What to do?
I’ve tossed the problem back to the school to see what they think. Just thought I’d toss the issue out for comment and ideas.
As I continue this blogging process, I’ve decided to make a dilemma
category. Wonder how many I will have by the end of the year?
