Cheating Allowed--If You have The Title

You are teaching a class which is full of  kids who failed the previous term and need to do an online project  to earn back this credit.    You tell the students not to worry about learning anything new and encourage them to work on their assignment instead.  You even allow them to bring the questions up on the smart board which gives everyone in the room a chance to help do the assignment for them.

You might worry that your supervisor won't approve this activity, but the teacher doing this had no worry because, this teacher was the supervisor of the department.

(Actually witnessed this last semester.  The AP encouraged kids to do this.  No wonder 78% of CUNY freshman need remediation.)
