A good friend of mine (let’s call him D.) asked if I could help his nephew V. with English essay. He studies in middle school in Russia. It’s not the first time V. did not do his homework. I recommended to copy some examples from google. It would be at least more useful for him rather than doing nothing. But he said that schoold checks homework for plagiarism. What?!
That really surprised me. I honestly do not expect an English teacher from any middle school to verify assignments for plagiarism in Google.
So I decided to run a small experiment. I’ll include invisible copy of the homework into this post. Google will be able to find it here. And if I get at least one referral from Google to this page I would start to think that teachers might check homework against Google. But I highly doubt it.
