Plagiarisim

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)

SCHOOL CONSEQUENCES

  • 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.
