PLAGIARISM Using someone else’s words or ideas and claiming proper credit for them. Heard or used any of these excuses for plagiarizing? I don’t have time to put this into my own words and cite it. This topic is boring. It’s not a big deal. Everybody else does it. I don’t understand the topic. (liftarn)
TYPES OF PLAGIARISM http://ed.ted.com/lessons/the-punishable-perils-of-plagiarism-melissa-huseman-d- annunzio#watch Submitting your own work for another class. Making up sources. Copying, summarizing, or paraphrasing without giving credit. Changing words but not the word order or syntax (sentence type or style). Using a LOT of quotes or paraphrasing (shows no original thought).
QUOTING Copying someone else’s words exactly as they are written (use quotation marks). Only quote if you LOVE the author’s words. They’re powerful and can’t be replaced by you. You must cite it (Works Cited page (MLA) or bibliography (APA) and parenthetical documentation (author’s last name and page number).
PATCHWORK WRITING Your paper or project should not contain more than 15% quotes. Otherwise, you’re not thinking as much as you should be. You’re just regurgitating other people’s words/ideas. (Normanack)
PARAPHRASING Putting someone else’s words into your own words. Could be the same length or even longer than the original. Do NOT use quotation marks. MUST BE CITED!!! (Works Cited page (MLA) or bibliography (APA) and parenthetical documentation (author’s last name and page number). Just changing a couple of words is not good enough. Look at the sentence and then look away. Ask yourself, “What did I just learn from this.” Then write it in your own voice with your own wording and sentence structure.
SUMMARIZING Putting text completely into your own words and greatly shortening its length. Just giving the gist of the original text. MUST BE CITED!!! (Works Cited page (MLA) or bibliography (APA) and parenthetical documentation (author’s last name and page number).
WHY BOTHER? Brainstorm with the people at your table why we should bother to avoid plagiarism. Elect a reporter in case your table is called on.
