3 The Definition of Plagiarism "Plagiarism, believe it or not, comes from a Latin verb that means, “to kidnap.”  If you plagiarize you’re kidnapping and stealing others’ hard work and intellectual property  It is academic and public dishonesty. You wouldn’t want someone stealing your hard work, intentionally or even unintentionally, would you? Of course not” (Weiss, 2002). 3

4 1. “Do not use someone’s words without referencing the source or including the information in quotation marks or a block quote 2. Do not use someone’s ideas without referencing the source " (Weiss, 2002). 4

5 Summarizing: including the main points of an author in your own words; without including personal commentary or interpretation Paraphrasing: includes your perspective and is more extensive than a summary. You may NOT substitute synonyms for the author’s writing. Quoting: “You can quote all of the exact words of a sentence.” “… part of a sentence,” “or omit words … that you don’t want to use” (Weiss, 2002). 5

6 Published Source Anyone who is skilled at making pancakes.... will have the griddle very hot so that the batter solidifies quickly after being poured. Not having a thermostat on the griddle, one tests the griddle's temperature by sprinkling water on it. If the griddle is hot but not hot enough, the water drops spread out, wet the surface and evaporate within about two seconds. If the griddle is ready for the batter, the sprinkled drops dance, vibrate and skim over the surface for from 30 to 100 seconds. How can drops last longer on a hotter griddle? 6

7 Student Writing Sample If you have ever made pancakes, you might have noticed that if the griddle is hot but not quite ready for the batter, a drop of water sprinkled on the griddle will thin out and disappear in about two seconds. When the surface becomes hot enough, however, the droplets will bounce, wriggle and skip above the griddle for anywhere from half a minute to over a minute and a half. How can this be? Bibliography Walker, Jearl Drops of water dance.... The American Scientist. 237:
