Re: Term paper about "God" earns student failing grade
How many other people were going to read the paper to be offended by it? Pretty obvious to me that the only person offended was the person that had to read and grade the paper. So what if she used the word "God" in her paper on religion. I don't think it was going to change anyone's opinion on the topic. I agree with GAC. Silly and ridiculous. Very petty. Plenty of students write a lot of term papers that are controversial in nature. I'm sure this one is not the first one that this instructor has read. Was the paper well written and of substance? That should be the reason for the excercise and the only reason to grade it, one way or another.
Talent is God Given: be humble.
Fame is man given: be thankful.
Conceit is self given: be careful.
