Copy Error

| Sydney, NSW, Australia | Learning | July 31, 2014

(I am learning pattern making as part of a fashion course. Due to illness I had missed a day of class, along with a couple of other students. We are all adults.)

Teacher: “Those students who missed last class have to sit down the back to complete the work done on that day.”

(She gives us her work book to work from. She goes up the front and starts on the next lesson. I start quickly copying from her page, writing all the notes she has written, because I knew the work would take all lesson and I didn’t want to miss out on the current lesson. I intended on working the lesson at home.  The other students start doing the same. The teacher comes up to check on our progress.)

Teacher: “How dare you just copy my work? That’s my work. You have to do it on your own!”

Me: “You gave it to us to work off! I copied it so I can work on it at home and not miss today’s lesson and have to do the same thing tomorrow.”

Teacher: “YOU COPIED MY WORK. IT’S NOTHING BUT COPYING. YOU DIDN’T DO THE WORK. I DID. IT’S NOT FAIR!”

(I then headed back to my normal seat to copy the work that she had drawn on the board –  work she had copied straight from her work book page, word for word. Apparently if it was on the board it was learning not copying…)
