1 Summarize, Quote, Paraphrase and CITING SOURCES!

2  Definition  Plagiarize \'pla-je-,riz also j - -\ vb -rized; -riz·ing vt [plagiary] : to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own : use (a created production) without crediting the source vi: to commit literary theft: present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source - pla·gia·riz·er n  FROM: Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary 9th ed, (Springfield, Ma: Merriam 1981, p. 870).

3  1. They simply copied and pasted information from one source into their paper without quotations or references.  2. They write down, word for word, something that was written in a book into their notes and then type it directly into their paper.  3. They think they have successfully restated what the original author said, and even gave reference, but what they actually did was just change a few words around or came up for synonyms for words in the original passage.

4  1. Summarize, quote, or paraphrase the material you write down from books or the internet. Take special note of any key phrases or technical terms as they need to be documented. Basically, if it is not a transition or an original thought by you, it needs to be documented.  2. Give reference to every single book or internet source as in an in-text citation right after write the information you borrowed in your paper (we will talk more about this later).  3. Make a list of all of the books, magazines, internet sites etc. that you used in your paper and list them at the end of your paper on a page called the “works cited”. The sources will be in alphabetical order based upon the author’s last name and will follow MLA style (we will talk more about this later).

5  1. A summary - is a shorter version of a longer piece of writing. The summary captures all the most important parts of the original, but expresses them in a [much] shorter space.  2. The summary should be in your own words. It's not enough to merely copy out parts of the original.  You STILL need to cite your source

6  A quote is ANY time that you lift information word- for-word from a source. The quote does not have to be a direct quote in the book. A direct quote already has quotation marks. When you write information word-for- word into your paper you MUST put the information in quotation marks and cite your source at the end.

7  Paraphrasing is in your own words! Simply switching an author’s words around or using synonyms in place of an author’s words is not enough. Paraphrasing is useful because it makes you seem more credible, and it also gives you an opportunity to develop your own writing style.  You STILL need to cite your source

8  SafeAssignment scrubs document for MATCHING between your documents and books and websites  ESPECIALLY good at catching plagiarizers and BAD PARAPHRASERS  One TOOL teachers/professors/professionals use to check INTEGRITY of a student paper  To submit to SafeAssignment, write your document in word and then browse and attach it to the SafeAssignment your teacher tells you to go to. You will learn about this soon.

9  1. READ AND REREAD the passage you want to use until you understand it. Look up words or ask for help.  2. Make a short, bulleted list of the information in the passage. Try not to take your notes word for word  3. REWRITE the passage using YOUR OWN WORDS from the notes; not the ones the author used.  4. CHECK your passage with the original. Does it sound the same? Does it use simple word-replacement? It should still have the same info, but sound like YOU  5. REWRITE your paraphrase until all the words are your own.  6. CITE YOUR SOURCE at the end of the paraphrase in an in-text citation (you will learn this later)

10  Log into computer and go to  Click on “schools” and select “high school”  Scroll down. In lower left box click on “blended schools.” This will take you to the Blackboard login  Log in is “gs15.” then first two letters of first name and whole last name. For example: “gs15.malogan”  Password is student ID  Scroll down on the right and look for “English 10.” Click on that and then follow directions on the handout I gave you.
