Grading projects the last two nights.  It was a 15-event timeline of events leading to the Revolution.  Students had to have exact date, analysis of the event and its importance towards the Revolution, and a picture.

I have 150 8th graders, mainly "advanced" and aiming for the high-end programs in high school.

15 of them straight up copied and pasted from the internet.  Mainly Wikipedia.  Didn't even change a word.

Print out copies of the wiki articles and just hand those back to them.

The 36-year-old is also accused of having sex with an animal and cruelty to animals.

This man was the father of two kids in the school my children attend.  His daughter is in my son's class.  The father was in studies for his Masters degree, held some kind of straight job.  He was always well dressed, clearly loved his kids.  The little girl is one of the brightest faces in the class.  She's smart and sweet and funny. 

Now she's got no father on some exceedingly stupid and meaningless shtein, whatever it was.  Bad luck.  A dope habit no one new about and bad luck.  Visiting friends in a bad neighbhorhood, I don't know.  Dude wasn't in the game I'm reasonably sure.  I think what he did wrong was be black in Baltimore.
