Because I'm pretty sure I'm exempt from all of them except for Algebra, and I'm ok with that.
Today I found out the 12 kids in my English teacher's pre AP course plagiarized on an analytical essay. Let me repeat that, 12 KIDS PLAGIARIZED.
That's more than 10 percent of the kids! This is outrageous! We are AP students, who in that class would need to cheat in order to feel like they could pass?! And what was even more shocking was that the kids that I thought were 'smart' were the ones that cheated.
Guess I was wrong. I know I've gotten 'help' from my friends before when it came to school work, but I've never plagiarized, and nor will I ever.
Also, I recently was informed that the UIL debate topic for 2009 came out. It's RESOLVED: Federal government bailouts of major corporations are just.
It's an ok topic, the only problem is you can really write an LD case for it, I mean in LD all we do is argue values and ethics, nothing really political.
