This morning started off horribly. My Union rep. came to me and told me that "somebody was after my job" and had told her, after admin left a meeting last night, that I was plagiarizing. This person showed her a rubric of mine and said it didn't match the lesson I handed out because I'd got the lesson from online. I told her: ... Um, yeah. I was hired to teach 8th, 9th, 11th honors, and 12th honors a week before school started. There is no way I could make my entire curriculum from scratch. I supplement my materials with materials bought online from teacherspayteachers. I don't pretend they are mine. I keep the copyright info. right on there. I thought this was common practice. If the rubric does not match it is because the materials did not have one and I created it from scratch. She said she was just giving me a heads up so I didn't get blindsided and so that I know someone is watching my every move. This person apparently didn't mention it to admin. so I didn't need to go justify myself. She said to just mention in my classes from time to time, "hey, I searched for an amazing activity and found this one online!" Admin, by the way, just evaluated me for the first time on Friday. He heard me say: "hey, class, this annotated sonnet isn't mine. I found it online and wanted to show it to you as a strong example. THIS is my version... bly looks closer to what you did." He told me I did great and that my first evaluation was very strong. Am I doing something wrong? Do you use the Internet as a resource? Do you mention that you didn't make whatever lesson plan or umit to your students every time you teach it? Why is it more acceptable to photocopy a thirty year old textbook?
