"Steal her ideas and rephrase them in your own prose, because there is nothing teachers like more than knowing that students can write well but have no original ideas." -- To quote Dr. Julius Hibbard, it's deliciously satirical! Fed-up uni prof gives today's lazy undergrads some tips on successful plagiarization and cheating. Having busted one student this spring for lifting a whole paragraph out of an obscure Globe op-ed, and one last fall who liberally used direct quotes from my lectures and conferences with him as his own thoughts, I chuckled darkly.
