Giving Credit - A Lesson in Plagiarism and MLA Citations
This StAIR (stand-alone instructional resource) was created to give secondary students a brief lesson in plagiarism, giving credit to the ideas of others and MLA referencing. This lesson is focused more on the why and the when of giving credit (and consequences of plagiarism) rather than a comprehensive lesson on how to reference, assuming there are a wealth of resources online to help students format such references. For information about reference formatting specifics, this StAIR includes links to the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) and EasyBib.com. This StAIR was created in Apple Keynote and exported as a Quicktime movie file. The link will open the Quicktime slideshow in a new window and students must use the navigation buttons to advance the lesson and receive feedback.
