PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This three-page handout explains clearly what plagiarism is and gives examples of how and when to use quotations and paraphrase. After completing the accompanying worksheet, students will understand intentional and unintentional plagiarism. I use this with my first-year college students with great success. I find that just explaining it to them doesn't work, and by providing this lesson at the beginning of the quarter, they feel confident about what is expected, and we avoid many problems.
Included: 3-page handout with examples, 1 student worksheet, 1 answer key.
Note: Citations shown are in MLA format.

Simple example. Sadly, college students often have misconception of plagiarism. As clear as a simple definition is, it never clarifies for all students. A few minute fir easy on the front end, prevents hard lessons for students.

This is a great activity. My 8th graders really seem to get it after going through the lesson and worksheet. Only a few students said that they wanted to go through some more practice examples, but most kids go it right away!
