  1. Avoiding Plagiarism

  2. Origin of Word • From the Latin word “plagium” which means kidnapping.

  3. What is Plagiarism? • Taking ideas, words, art, etc. that belong to someone else, and passing it off as your own, whether on purpose or by accident.

  4. If you didn’t already know… • You don’t need to cite a source if it’s a well-known fact. • For example: “George Washington was the first US president.” • Cite sources when you are using information other than well-known facts.

  5. Plagiarism happens when… • A website has just the right information on my subject, so I cut and paste it to my paper.

  6. Solve it by… • Put the pasted material in quotations and cite your source in-text and in the works cited page.

  7. Plagiarism happens when… • I really like the way the writer described the character in a book, so I write his/her words down in my book report.

  8. Solve it by… I can write . . . “As JK Rowling put it in The Order of the Phoenix, ‘The evidence the dark lords had returned was incontrovertible.’ “

  9. Plagiarism happens when… • I copied a paragraph from an encyclopedia and changed a few words so it looked a little different and let the teacher think they were my words.

  10. Solve it by… • I can read the paragraph, close the book and write, in my own words, what the paragraph was saying. • This is called paraphrasing. • Still needs an in-text citation and works cited listing.

  11. Avoiding Plagiarism • Using other people’s work is a good thing if I give them proper credit.

  12. Still Avoiding Plagiarism • Write source cards as you use resources. Number them. • Put each new fact on a notecard, include source card number & page number • Put quotes around directly quoted facts

  13. Remember… • If the information is new to me, it probably needs to be cited.

  14. Why Should I Care? • I could receive an F or 0 on my paper. • I may not get credit for the class and have to take it again.

  15. If I plagiarize in high school, I may not graduate on time. • I could lose college acceptances and scholarships. • At a job, if I take credit for someone else’s work, I could be fired.

  16. Be Smart • Don’t plagiarize • Give credit where credit is due • When in doubt, cite it
