I caught four of my level 3 students cheating on their final exams. They were using their cell phones during the test. I am so disappointed. I thought that these students had more respect for me and for my class than to do this. I even brought them breakfast today before the exam. I guess that's the last time I do that. I also allowed them to use their dictionaries on the exam. (This isn't super unusual in upper level foreign language classes, where the emphasis is less on vocabulary and more on grammar and putting it all together.) I guess I won't be giving them that freebie in the future either. Sigh. When are we going to address this culture of cheating in schools today? This is just out of control.
