Cheating lessons : learning from academic dishonesty / by Lang, James M.;
Includes bibliographical references and index.Building a Theory of Cheating. Who cheats, and how much? -- Case studies in (the history of) cheating -- "Fudging" learning environments. -- The (Nearly) Cheating-Free Classroom. Fostering intrinsic motivation -- Learning for mastery -- Lowering stakes -- Instilling self-efficacy. -- Speaking About Cheating. Cheating on campus -- On original work -- Responding to cheating -- Cheating in your classroom. -- The future of cheating.Nearly three-quarters of college students cheat during their undergraduate careers, a startling number attributed variously to the laziness of today's students, their lack of a moral compass, or the demands of a hypercompetitive society. For the author, cultural or sociological explanations like these are red herrings. His provocative new research indicates that students often cheat because their learning environments give them ample incentives to try, and that strategies which make cheating less worthwhile also improve student learning. This book is a practical guide to tackling academic dishonesty at its roots. Drawing on an array of findings from cognitive theory, he analyzes the specific, often hidden features of course design and daily classroom practice that create opportunities for cheating. Courses that set the stakes of performance very high, that rely on single assessment mechanisms like multiple-choice tests, that have arbitrary grading criteria: these are the kinds of conditions that breed cheating. He seeks to empower teachers to create more effective learning environments that foster intrinsic motivation, promote mastery, and instill the sense of self-efficacy that students need for deep learning. Although cheating is a persistent problem, the prognosis is not dire. The good news is that strategies which reduce cheating also improve student performance overall. Instructors who learn to curb academic dishonesty will have done more than solve a course management problem; they will have become better educators all around.

Killing Kennedy : the end of Camelot / by O'Reilly, Bill.; Dugard, Martin.;
Includes bibliographical references (pages 305-311) and index.Prologue -- A note to readers --Cheating death -- The curtain descends -- Evil wins -- Afterword -- Sources -- Acknowledgments.In January 1961, as the Cold War escalates, John F. Kennedy struggles to contain the growth of Communism while he learns the hardships, solitude, and temptations of what it means to be president of the United States. Along the way he acquires a number of formidable enemies, among them Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, and Allen Dulles, director of the Central Intelligence Agency. In addition, powerful elements of organized crime have begun to talk about targeting the president and his brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy.In the midst of a 1963 campaign trip to Texas, Kennedy is gunned down by an erratic young drifter named Lee Harvey Oswald. The former Marine Corps sharpshooter escapes the scene, only to be caught and shot dead while in police custody.The events leading up to the most notorious crime of the twentieth century are almost as shocking as the assassination itself. Killing Kennedy chronicles both the heroism and deceit of Camelot, bringing history to life in ways that will profoundly move the reader.-- provided by purblisher.
