Plagiarism is the act of presenting the word, ideas, images, sounds, or the creative expressions of others as your own.
TWO TYPES OF PLAGIARISIM
1. INTENTIONAL(copying a friends work, borrowing or buying a paper, and cutting and pasting text directly in your paper)
2. UNINTENTIONAL(poor paraphrasing, poor citation forgetting to cite, using to many quotes)
- you can get an "F"
- suspension or expulsion from school
- dismissal from school or sport activities
HOW TO AVOID PLAGIARISM
- cite or credit your sources
- this is called attribution, which means giving the author for their work or idea's
- paraphrase the work that means writing down the information in your own words
DO YOU HAVE TO CITE EVERYTHING ON A PAPER?
No, facts that are widely known, information or Judgement considered "common knowledge." Ex. George Washington was the first president of the united states.
