EXTRA- Annotation:

Annotation is the description of the source and how it was used.

Plagiarism:

What is Plagiarism?

- Taking other's info/ideas/etc. and using them as your own. There are two types:

() Intentional: Copying and pasting work without permission and citing

() Unintentional: Too many quotes, poor paraphrasing/citations


If you plagiarize:

- Kicked out of college (first punishment)

- Lose your job and recommendations to another job/college

- Sued by person who originally owned the idea, article, etc.


How to avoid plagiarism:

- Use quotation marks (make no change to the text and put name after)

- Paraphrase (write in your own words, show you understand the source, put cite after)


Methods of using other's work without plagiarism:

- Quote the author

- Paraphrase

- Summarize
