GOOD MORNING! “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” ~Ernest Hemingway 3/3/14 Please take out your English notebook, tan packet, and your neon green paper rubric **We’ll have a new seating chart today! Learning target: Identify plagiarism and explain how to avoid it
Agenda3/3/14 Plan for the Week Avoiding Plagiarism Practice Sample Paper Analysis Homework: Nothing officially due this week! Just remember your complete first draft (including word count and works cited) is due Monday, March 10 th, at the beginning of class!
Plan for the Week Today: Review plagiarism/citation info, check out sample paper and rubric Tuesday: continue reviewing sample papers Wednesday-Thursday: In Lab 100 to work on rough drafts (extra help during conference period WED. this week in Lab 200) Friday: In Lab 100 to keep working on drafts
Rough Draft Timeline Your complete essay rough draft is due at the beginning of class Monday, printed out and ready to edit. MUST HAVE WORD COUNT AND WORKS CITED FOR CREDIT! You’ll edit this in class Monday and Tuesday next week You’ll have next Wed.-Fri. to work in the lab for edits Then turn in your updated RD #2 (teacher draft) on Friday, with your RD #1, word count and works cited by the end of the day Friday (3:00!) Also, this will be turned in to turnitin.com (we’ll review turnitin.com when we’re in the lab!)
Rubric Overview This is your copy that you will turn in with RD#2 and your final- keep it in a safe spot! “open box side”: what I’ll use to give you feedback on your RD#2 “lotsa words” side: what I’ll use to evaluate your final essay Check out the various category values-you can get a good grade on this paper without it being all excellents, and you only need to have all proficient in order to pass the paper! Excellence note: If you are working towards an Excellent for your final paper, your RD#2 MUST be at least proficient across the entire rubric at the time of turn-in (in other words, work really hard to make it very good the first time, so the RD#2 edits are just about bringing it up one level if needed)
When do you cite? Words or ideas presented in a source Information you gain through interviewing or conversing with another person, face to face, over the phone, or in writing (ask me for more details if you’re planning to interview) Bottom line, document any words, ideas, or other productions that originate somewhere outside of you.
When you don’t have to cite When you are using "common knowledge," things like folklore, common sense observations, myths, urban legends, and historical events, like, “Henry Ford was born in 1863.” When you are using generally-accepted facts, e.g., “Pollution is bad for the environment.”
Deciding if Something is "Common Knowledge" Generally speaking, you can regard something as common knowledge if you find the same information undocumented in at least five credible sources. It might be common knowledge if you think the information you're presenting is something a reasonably intelligent person ( ) would know, or something that a person could easily find in general reference sources. When in doubt, cite; if the citation turns out to be unnecessary, I’ll tell you!
