ABSTRACT
The relationship between student and teacher in the college composition classroom is directly effected by the implementation of a plagiarism detection service such as Turnitin. With more colleges and universities asking or mandating instructors to utilize these programs, instructors must be aware of both the pros and cons of Turnitin. The tensions of such a system come from the binaries that are created and the reliance on the stereotype that all college students would cheat, if given the opportunity. Utilizing my own experience as both a student and a faculty member required to use Turnitin, this article unpacks the Turnitin system from both perspectives. This article distinguishes the uses of the word "plagiarism" and the educational implications of both the term itself and its connotations. Using Friere's baking model and Foucault's concept of the panopticon, I analyze the positions of authority of both student and teacher in order to assess the effects of plagiarism to the composition classroom.
