Summer School - Day Eighteen - Cheating

I am giving daily homework quizzes as a way to assess student progress in the rapidly paced world of summer school. Cheating is rampant. It's a small room with no dividers. Temptation is strong.

But, there is a larger underlying reason why students cheat. They are embarrassed by their lack of understanding. And that is my fault, not theirs.

Students who are truly interested in learning, who are engaged in the subject matter, who want to demonstrate their own learning will have no desire to cheat.
