Yes,, of course you know it's N'Ko Alphabet Day. I hope you've been celebrating appropriately as I have. In fact, what are you doing reading this blog right now, anyway? Go party like it's 1949 in West Africa!
I am taking a break from the festivities at Stately Beaker Ben Manor to fill you in on the greatest event ever to occur on N'Ko or any other language's alphabet day.
I received a a polite, clearly written and reasonable request from a student.
He spelled my name correctly, addressed me as "Dr." and apologized for interrupting my weekend. (He apologized! Can you believe that?) His Turn It In score for his lab report was 20% similar so he was concerned. My new favorite student checked and found that it was stuff like the lat report title and some information on the experiment data sheet. Basically, he didn't plagiarize but he emailed me because he just wanted to make sure. Oh, and he's turned in his report four days early, which gives me time to double check his draft and make suggestions for improvement.
As if I didn't have enough reason to celebrate today, right?
I've read about courteous students on the internet but never really believed those stories. My friends, it is true!
OK, OK, sorry to distract you from your N'Ko celebrations. Get back to your party.
