Respond to Classmate Jill:
I choose the plagiarism case study. The instructor Brian McNally works at a University in Boston Massachusetts, which has a strict plagiarism policy that is stated clearly in the course syllabus and given to every student at the beginning of the course. One of his students turned in the first term paper and it was very clear that she had plagiarized her paper. The student explains that she was not aware that this was not allowed stating that in her country she came from this was academically tolerant. The instructor is struggling with what to do, a part of him feels he needs to follow the rules of the University and give her a failing grade and maybe kick her out of class because if she fails this paper she will fail the class, but on the other hand he feels maybe he should give her a chance to rewrite the paper, especially if this is truly a culture misunderstanding.
An ethical code that stood out to me with this case was justice. Justice states that all are entitled to and have access to services, processes and procedures (American Psychological Association, 207). Although these ethical codes are geared toward psychology, this one fits this case study because the student should have access to knowing exactly the expectations of plagiarism in a way that they can understand and make sure that they have understood it especially if they come from a different culture where plagiarism may be looked at differently. My plan would be to have the student rewrite the paper after explaining the expectations surrounding plagiarism and the severity of it. Make sure that the student understands what was explained. Make sure the students understands that if the second paper is still plagiarized, then the student will fail the assignment and likely the course.
