Plagiarism--A Student's Guide to Avoiding It

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Used in course
Submitted by: Laurel Wenson (Administrator), Apr 29, 2010
Comment: As an administrator and teacher of a homeschool co-op of 120 students who meet weekly, I have found this article to be extremely helpful in the classroom. Our co-op stresses academic excellence and college prep. classes, and this handout explains the various types of plagiarism in a well organized and easy to read format. The author's examples clearly illustrate both a plagiarized text as well as a properly written paraphrase. We have contacted her for permission to utilize it in all of our upper middle and high school classes next year!

Technical Remarks:

Although the subject matter in this paper is about science, it can be easily used in any upper level academic class. It is particularly helpful to any class that requires a research paper during the semester!
