Let’s say that you are in a writing class that has four major assignments. You have completed assignments one-three fairly well, though you are fond of “blazing your own path” and ignoring most of the directions.
Here you are at the end of the semester, with one assignment left. Since you are in college, please do not think that you can copy and paste assignments one-three into a single document and be done. Even if assignments build on one another, in a college class, you are expected to have some new information in the final document.
Yes, someone really did ask me about this today…….please, please, please, follow the directions that you are given and please realize that the final assignment (which probably carries the most weight of the entire term) is probably NOT a copy and paste assignment.
Have you run into situations like this as a student? BTW, please use my name or refer to something in the blog posting when responding to my posts- I am getting a lot of spam recently and am just deleting replies that do not remark specifically about the posting they are commenting on.
