That is ridiculous. Look at what we are being taught: to copy! We are supposed to be learning to comprehend and form our own words and opinions. [/QUOTE]
Heh heh.... no, we're being taught to copy as long as we make sure they know who we are copying. I don't know about other disciplines, but I know in psychology and biology, any paper you write has every single line of text referenced....... one of my psych profs actually told me that we're not considered to have any relevant thoughts on the subject yet, and every sentence in our paper must be followed by a reference. We're taught more to condense than to think.
