Being Dishonest In A Classroom Setting

Our class has been learning about plagiarism the past week. What is plagiarism? To me plagiarism is taking someone's idea and using it for yourself. What would it look like to be dishonest in a classroom setting? Being dishonest would look very embarrassing for the guy being dishonest because if you get caught plagiarising (Which is an act of being dishonest) the teacher would usually talk to you in front of the class which is very embarrassing. Also it would look very bad for the guy getting caught because then he gets a reputation of being dishonest and that gets you bad marks in school and whenever you write something the teacher will always be questioning you.
