I thought my head was going to snap off when at a norming session at Heartland, one of the adjuncts suggested the Writing Program subscribe to We weren't even discussing plagiarism. We were discussing storage of student papers and what the benefits etc. were. I try to keep my mouth shut because I teach one class; I have no power. I held my tongue, drank my coffee and prayed no one would engage in this discussion cus I really didn't want to step in it when I felt so awful physically.

I continue to be dumbfounded by this "profession" of teaching writing and some teacher's attitudes. It's quite frightening, really.
