PLAGIARISM BREAKING THROUGH
WHAT IS PLAGIARISM?
- ANY IDEAS NOT ORIGINATED BY YOU.
- And MANY more.
HOW CAN I USE WORK BUT NOT PLAGIARIZE???
- On a separate page at the end of the writing.
- Name listing: (Ex. Twain, Mark)
- More than one author + information used; print, digital sources, primary sources, etc: (Ex. King, Martain Luther. I have a Dream. Burton, Tim. The Nightmare before Christmas.)
- Work with NO author: (Ex. Train around the World.)
I think about it like generations of a family. When parents have a baby, it is a paraphrase of both the mom and dad. THE BABY IS NOT THE SAME PERSON AS THE PARENTS, BUT KIND OF LIKE THEM.
- GENETICS: Main idea
- All the little changes like hair color and sex is the wording you put them in.
WORK CITED LIST

On a separate piece of paper at the end

MLA CITATION GUIDELINES
THE MLA IN TEXT CITATION
The formatting is simple and predominantly the same. Assuming we're going to focus on not plagiarizing writing, we'll cover that format.
- Always use the authors last name.
- Always put the page number/paragraph in parenthesis BEFORE the period. (Last name (page #/par #/ page #, par #)
SHORT QUOTES) To use short quotations, sum up the information with double quotation marks. Give the author and exact page citation. If it’s a verse, like from the Bible, then use line numbers. Include a complete reference on your work cited page at the end of your paper.
