   What is Plagiarism?
Plagiarism is the act of
presenting the words, ideas,
images, sounds, or the creative
expression of others as your
own.
             Two Types of Plagiarism
    Intentional               Unintentional
Copying a friend's work      Careless paraphrasing
Buying or borrowing papers   Poor documentation
Cutting and pasting blocks
of text                      Quoting excessively
Media "borrowing" without    Failure to use your own
 documentation                "voice"
               Excuses
I've got to    Everyone     I was too busy to
  get into      does it!    write that paper!
University!!               (Job, big game, too
                           much homework!)



      My                           My parents
   teachers                       expect "A"s!
  expect too
    much!
    Why plagiarism isn't a good idea
               (as if it were necessary!)
The consequences are not worth the risks!
When you copy, you cheat yourself. You limit
your own learning.
Citing makes it possible for your readers to
locate your source.
Education is not an "us vs. them" game. It's
about learning to learn!
      Possible Consequences
 "0" on an assignment
 Parent notification
 Referral to administrators
 Note on student record
  Withdrawn from University or
College (no $ refunded)
               What if:
 Your doctor cheated his way through
med school. Would you feel
confident in his/her diagnosis?
 Your doctor paid for a copy of the
MCAT exam. Do you feel confident in
his/her diagnosis?
Avoiding Plagiarism DVD
               Summary
1. Organize time requirements and
   use good note taking strategies
    Plan due dates for completing
    research to avoid last-minute
    panic.
    Take good notes to document
    your sources as you do your
    research.
                 Summary
2. Use quotes, paraphrases and summaries
    correctly
     Quotes are the exact words of an author
     placed within quotations marks.
     Paraphrases combine others’ ideas with
     your own.
     Summarizing involves putting the main
     idea(s) of one or several sources into
     your own words, including only the
     main points.
               Summary
3. Correct documentation and citation
     All source materials need to be
     documented using correct
     citation.
     MLA and APA are commonly used
     formats.
     Always ask your
     teacher/professor what format
     they prefer.
  Good Luck Citing!
