Thanks for sharing this story about Helen Keller. Stories are such a good way to get a point across. They work every time for me 🙂 Last year I completed the ModPo MOOC (Modern and Contemporary American Poetry) and as part of thinking about where poets get their inspiration from I thought about plagiarism and wrote this blog post – Sorry to push my blog post on you – but maybe the idea of repurposing is relevant to the discussions that we are having in rhizo14 about cheating?
