15 How do you make sure you don’t plagiarize? 1. Start your research early!Research takes time. It takes time to search for, evaluate and read sources. Also, if you plan ahead you won’t forget to keep track of what information came from what resource.
16 How do you make sure you don’t plagiarize? 2. Keep track!Use lists to help you keep track of the encyclopedias, books, websites and online databases you use in your research. Don’t forget to include the web addresses of pictures you use.The information in these lists will be used to create a bibliography.
17 What is a Bibliography?A BIBLIOGRAPHY is a list of all the sources you used while doing your research. This list is usually found on the last page of your research paper.
18 How do you make sure you don’t plagiarize? Paraphrase: Put the information in your own words!Use point form to write just key words and ideasUse a pencil or pen – DO NOT cut and pasteThese are your notes… write them in your research grid or on note cardsWhen you write your first draft, paraphrase from your notes
19 How do you make sure you don’t plagiarize? 4. Use quotation marksIf you copy someone else’s words exactly, use “quotation marks” around those words to show that you have copied them.Hint: you should probably not use quotation marks more than two or three times on a page.
20 How do you make sure you don’t plagiarize? 5. Cite your stuff!When you “cite your stuff” you are creating the lists of the resources you used in your research.Citations are the individual entries found in the Bibliography that include information such as the author, title, date of publication or web site address of each resource you used.
21 To create a bibliography… For every resource you use to write your assignment or create your project, you need to answer the following questions:WHERE? Where did you find the resource? (A book, an online database, the Internet?)WHO? Who is the author? For a picture from the Internet, “Who created the picture?”WHAT? What is the resource's title?WHEN? When was the resource written? If you used the Internet, what date did you access the item?
22 Your citation would look like this… If you used a book…Who wrote it?What is the title?When was it published?Your citation would look like this…Author's name, last name first.Title of book, italicized .Copyright date.Example: Kendell, Patricia. Leopards
23 Your citation would look like this… If you used a web site...Who wrote the article on the web site? What is the title of the article? What is the title of the home page? When did you visit this page? What is the address of the home page?Your citation would look like this…Example:"Cheetah Range." CheetahSpot. 15 OctName of the author, if available.“Title of the article, in quotes.”Title of the home page, if available, italicized.Date you visitedThe http address of the site
