When teaching high school, they are a little more apt to test the waters of plagiarism. Whether they are aware of their limitations or not, they often take other's work as their own. I try to prepare my students for college as much as possible. Cheating isn't a huge offense in our school due to other larger issues that take precedence, but it is a major offence in higher education.
I have my students complete this project whenever they are caught plagiarizing or even cheating on assignments/assessments.
