I have asked similar questions in the past, but I haven't received an answer that works for me. I'm trying again. I teach a foreign language. It is a "less commonly taught" language and no longer spoken anywhere. There is a heavy emphasis on reading, not so much on speaking, listening, or writing. I often assign passages from the textbook for students to translate. Each passage focuses on a particular grammatical skill and vocabulary set. It is very difficult to find passages outside my textbook that have the right combination of grammar and vocab. I prefer not to write my own passages because it takes a lot of time and I have hundreds of students, multiple preps, and very little planning time. Most students do their own work. A small, but not small enough, handful of crafty students has discovered that these passages have been translated online at various sites, usually someplace like Yahoo! Answers. These translations are usually poorly done, sometimes just copied-and-pasted from Google Translate or from someone who has a cursory knowledge of the language. I can usually spot these passages from a mile away because they usually have some red flags. When I catch one, I find the website it came from, print it, staple it to the student's paper, and file it away. If the same student does this more than once, I follow my school's policy regarding academic dishonesty. I want my students to stop cheating. I don't know how to make this happen. The internet is far too big for me to police, so I obviously can't control what they find online. Because I'm so limited in which passages I can assign, the answers are readily available to anyone who looks. How can I get them to stop looking? I work so hard to help them build skills, to identify their needs and individualize my instruction, to show them the value of what we're learning, and to show them that I care. I think that most of them do know that I care and do value my class, but they are lazy. I don't know how to fix this. Suggestions? Ideas? Advice? I'm open.
