On Monday, December 19 the class is watching “Schindler’s List”. Please read the letter home for more information.
Recently, the Manitoba Education and Youth released a document related to assessment, academic responsibility, honesty and promotion or retention. A copy of it can be found here: http://www.edu.gov.mb.ca/k12/assess/docs/policy_k12/index.html
Our staff at Gordon Bell High School has taken a look at the Academic Honesty portion of this document and developed the following statement:
Academic Honesty is taught at all grade levels and in all subject areas in Gordon Bell. Lessons are designed to reflect the age and grade of the student, level of student understanding and be specific to the requirements of differing subject areas. Topics include: what is deemed to be plagiarism, copying and/or cheating; how to research; how to reference; reliable sources; use of technology and the internet; citing; copyright; royalties etc.
Consequences for plagiarism, copying other student work, cheating etc., will vary according to age, grade, understanding and whether the offence has occurred before. Consequences may include: re-doing the work; loss of marks; consultations with parents/guardians; loss of computer privileges; suspension etc.
Teachers will clearly outline to students, both orally and in writing, the expectations in assignments, tests and exam situations related to Academic Honesty.
Make sure to ask your teacher about their expectations related to Academic Honesty.
