Excellence in Writing

Editing is an important part of the writing process. This includes more than just the electronic spell check. The editing process is the part where you go through your paper over and over again to nit-pick out all the errors. A quick "read over" is not editing. For help editing, go to the following link. Just remember, every error you miss in editing, is an error that considered in your assignment evaluation.
Editing: HELP!

Anxious about your assignments' grades?

Remember to give me time to grade assignments after they have been submitted. I'm getting calls and emails from students about grades that have been submitted just one hour or even less! I will have your assignments graded within three school days...usually less!

According to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, to "plagiarize" means...

  • to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own
  • to use (another's production) without crediting the source
  • to commit literary theft
  • to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source

In other words, plagiarism is an act of fraud. It involves both stealing someone else's work and lying about it afterward.
