Thank God and sweet Jesus his son that coursework is going away, that's all I can say! Let me seek some advice... In my current year 11 group there are two pupils who, I discovered about 6 weeks ago, had plagiarised parts of their coursework, namely their media assignment, which was a film review. I'd picked up on all other plagiarsim and must have lectured the class dozens of times about it, warning them of the consequences etc. The two pupils were given back their work and told to reproduce it, this time from their own brains, rather than Wikipedia and Rotten Tomatoes.com (they'd actually both plagiarised the same passage at one point! Anyway, one of the girls didn't hand this work in by my internal deadline of February half-term. I'd pestered and pestered her for it, even texting my TA one day when I was off sick to ask her to pester on my behalf. I ended up sending the pupil an email during the half-term saying that if she would email me the work I'd do her to huge favour of making sure it got into the pile first thing Monday morning, despite the fact that all folders were being assembled ready of internal moderating and weren't supposed to be being touched or edited any further. The pupil didn't email me her work, nor did she respond to further pestering when we returned after the holidays. Instead, she complained to SLT that I was harrassing her and sending her inappropriate emails. SLT, in their infinite wisdom, took this very seriously and I was comprehensiovely and viciously b*ll*cked. Moreover, they continued to 'investigate' by interviewing all of the girl's friends who lied and made allegations of further inappropriate and harrassing contact (nagging, in other words, to prevent them from failing!). Anyway, the girl still had an incomplete folder. However, one of my colleagues suggested using a piece of work that the girl had produced for her Media Studies coursework, which just about managed to meet the criteria for English too. I've put it in her folder, but feel very uncomfortable about it for two reasons: 1) It's not exactly honest is it? 2) This girl has basically made my life a misery for the past 3 weeks....I'd really quite like to see her get the failing grade she deserves. What are your thoughts?
