Imitation and Flattery
The plan itself was different. Entirely. The template....mine! Right down to the font used. Some very wise student must have looked through all the previously posted plans, noted which ones gained critical (I mean that in a good way) feedback from the tutor and decided to imitate a plan that had garnered a "great work" response.
And do you know what, I have just laughed and laughed. I am touched that someone else thinks enough of my work to feel it worthy of taking on board for themselves. I think that is what collaborative learning is all about. This student's lesson plan is entirely their work and it's a darn good lesson, I think.
