What is Plagiarism? Plagiarism is using another persons words or ideas without giving credit to the other person. When you use someone elses words, you must put quotation marks around them and give the writer or speaker credit by revealing the source in a citation. Even if you paraphrase the words of someone else or just use their ideas, you still must give credit to the author. Not giving due credit to the creator of an idea or writing is much like lying. (www.virtualsalt.com/antiplag.htm)
What Teachers Look For Far too advanced vocabulary Quotes without citations Bibliography citations- looking for sources that might be unavailable to the student. Portions of the assignment that look added in (http://alexia.lis.uiuc.edu/~janicke/plagiary.ht m)
So What do you Do? Dont copy from sources. Forget cut and paste. Actually take the time to write notes in your own words. Dont just change a few words. Say it in your own words like you would to a real person. Put the rest in quotes. Remember: statistics need a source If you do cut and paste, put quotes ( ) around the entire passage. Have a take on the topic. Just dont start getting notes.

Unfortunately digital footprints last a lot longer than your teen years and in America there has been a spate of stories about potential employers and colleges rejecting applicants based on how they appear online. Think about how you want to be seen by others, and remember that adults use the internet as well as your peers. While you might want your friends to see photos of you drinking or being wild, many of you dont want their teachers, your friends, your parents, or other relatives to see you that way. You can control the information that you post, but there isnt much you can do about what other people post about you. Most websites have a report option to request inappropriate content is taken down but this is usually for offensive material rather than just because you dont want a photo of yourself acting like a teenager posted online. FYI: TAGGING ADDS TO YOUR DIGITAL FOOTPRINT EVEN IF YOU DIDNT TAG YOURSELF! As a first step ask the person who posted the tag, photo, or other info to remove it from their profile (get your parents to help if necessary). Most of the time this works and if it doesnt you can take it up with the site owner. If youre really worried about your digital footprint there are reputation management companies who will clean up your online reputation for you.
