Another Stolen Worksheet

Dear anchal25, thank you for your concern about stolen work. However, in your case, I must say that I share cheezel s opinion, nothing more.

To daxa, moniq2, and nkappa:
Yes, I agree with you that we should leave the decision to each person about what kind of person he/she wants to be(come). I don t even want to talk about rules of this site anymore (which, of course, already said NO to copied, scanned or stolen work). I just want to ask you this: if you find any of your students cheating on their work, do you let them be and leave it? or do you ask them to do the work by themselves (and make sure of that)? And if you notice many more of them cheating, do you think it s still acceptable? or do you feel the need to raise the issue? Will you try to make clear what may cause the behavior and also remind the consequences if they happen to do it again? or will you be happy with the way things are.. copies!

But I think they are just children who need to be guided towards the right thing to do. And, here we are talking about teachers who has a personality which is established and very hard to be changed! I  am in the opinion that anyway, we should warn these people  not to change their behaviour(because it very difficult) but not to do such things in this beautiful website!

OK LETS UNCOVER THE TRUTH HERE:

miss - miss (F) s nice Daily Routine Boardgame used simple Board TEMPLATE from Jefferson County Schools, which can be created within 10 minutes... http://jc-schools.net/tutorials/game/gameboard-complete.doc the boardgame TEMPLATE can be downloaded for free...

Then miss miss put some NEW COLOURS and typed the sentences related to Daily Routine. See here:
http://www.eslprintables.com/printable.asp?id=201107#thetop

After that, linggarjati USED board coloured by miss-miss and TYPED DIFFERENT SENTENCES.
http://www.eslprintables.com/printable.asp?id=201440#thetop AND she used different colours in here
http://www.eslprintables.com/printable.asp?id=201449#thetop

the last link provided
http://www.eslprintables.com/printable.asp?id=201443#thetop
is also a used boargame template from SOURCE and linggarjati SHOULD INCLUDE this information...
see sources "yupii" boardgames here : -
http://www.eslprintables.com/buscador/author.asp?user=110077#thetop  but the content seem new and OK

NOW, I think, when miss - miss (F) borrowed the template from Jefferson County and didn t state the SOURCE of board template, then why couldn t linggarjati borrow the borrowed template?
No-one stated the source, but THIS BOARD TEMPLATE is so simple easy to make, that I think THIS DEBATE IS NOT APPROPRIATE !!!
THE CONTENT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT thing. And it seems to be ORIGINAL !!!
LOL

Well miss-miss USES SIMPLE templates of board DOWNLOADED from web, which is perfectly OK and MANY contributors here DO THE same thing EVERY WEEK.
It would be REALLY NICE, if people stated the source AND included the weblink where the TEMPLATE is from, but they usually don t do it...

PS: What I hate is when somebody uses a COMPLICATED HARD-MADE board made by Pinky Makus or anybody else AND DOESN T ASK FOR PERMISSION !!! or at least doesn t state the it is from web...

LET S SUM UP THE TOPIC:

we can use a free SIMPLE board template from internet AND TYPE NEW SENTENCES and change the background
--- that is what linggarjati probably DID - that seems OK to me !!!


we CANNOT copy a boargame with sentences/words and state it as ours...
we CANNOT use cute and COMPLEX board TEMPLATE from ESLPRINTABLES contributor WITHOUT asking for permission and WITHOUT a link for the original post !!!
(see Pinky Makus wonderful boardgames... as an example)

Hi there, well I totally agree with Puspita, yes, of course i will get upset, but the point is that we are ADULTS, we already know that is something wrong to do and besides, many people have mentioned about stolen work. I think the solution will be not to allow those people to enter any more.

I just want to say that i really understand your point, and i m not saying that copying is correct, because it is not.

Dear Daxa,

Poor Countries don t give you the licence to STEAL!!! And yes you wanted to know how much I get paid.....well that s none of your business. And yes this website doesnt ask you to pay money........it only asks you to be creative and share YOUR ORIGINAL WORK.

All the best!!!

All you great teachers (except cheezels) have nicely overlooked the following:

http://www.eslprintables.com/printable.asp?id=201508#thetop (copied)

http://owl.english.purdue.edu/handouts/esl/eslsubverb.html   (Stolen)

People have blatantly copied merely for getting points???????????
