Plagiarism--A Student's Guide to Avoiding It

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Used in course
Submitted by: D'Arcy Hutchings (Librarian), Oct 12, 2012

With the author's permission, I altered the format of the content and used them to guide a workshop on plagiarism for writing tutors (higher ed.). After leading a brief discussion of what plagiarism is, I passed out a sheet containing the source passage and student's passage to 5 small groups (one type per group). Each group discussed whether there was plagiarism present and why. Then I provided each group with a debrief sheet that showed all of the content for that plagiarism type from the website. They then discussed whether they agreed with the author's name, description, and examples of that plagiarism type. We then came together and each group described the type they were given. It was a hit!
