“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.”
― George R.R. Martin
The “read more” concept is back in style.
The great minds have been pointing at books’ positive influence for a long time. And now, we cite their words and agree with that powerful impact books have on us.
A brave new world opens for those who read:
Reading makes us smarter and healthier. It influences the way we think and learn. And it makes us better writers, no matter what we write: essays or fiction.
Any proofs needed?

Top reasons why students plagiarize:
- Fear of failure.
- Lack of interest.
Academic plagiarism is the Achilles’ heel of most educators.
You try hard to develop your students’ critical thinking and writing skills, but they continue to attempt to copy texts and ideas from others, claiming them as own. It’s like a slap in your face or a kick in your… well, any part of your body, isn’t it?
Despite the devastating consequences of academic dishonesty and strong policies against it in most institutions, students don’t realize the problem.
Numbers speak volumes:
- 86% of students cheat in college.
- 54% believe it’s okay and even necessary to cheat to stay competitive.
- 76% copy others’ assignments word for word.
- 42% purchase papers from custom writing services.
Sounds unpromising, huh?
Time management skills – a set of abilities allowing to use the time to your advantage and control it between specific activities. These skills include but are not limited to goal-setting, planning, organization, prioritization, communication, and stress management. When mastered, they make you smarter and more successful, influencing your overall performance and life.
Time management for college students is a perpetual problem.
On the one hand, they study alongside employment and try to get around to their families and kids. On the other, they are ESL students struggling with English grammar and spending hours on tasks their native-speaking peers cope in minutes. But all of them are seeking a magic button to push and defeat that everlasting lack of time and tight deadlines.
