    1. Different Types of Plagiarism - Avoiding Plagiarism Lessons and Activities

    This lesson will help students gain an understanding of the different types of plagiarism to promote avoiding plagiarism in their writing. Explore the following types of plagiarism with your students:

    • Direct Plagiarism
    • Patchwork Plagiarism
    • Self-Plagiarism
    • Ghost Writing / Ghost Editing
    • Echo Plagiarism

    You can begin this mini-lesson with an inquiry-based activity using the Types of Plagiarism Plagiarism Task Cards. There are six task cards, each with a set of questions on the back. Cut these task cards out and place them at separate stations around the room. You can divide students into six groups and have each group explore a separate task card; alternatively, you can have each student rotate around the room and answer the questions on the Plagiarism Task Card Worksheets for each respective station.

    After exploring the task cards independently, students can read the Different Types of Plagiarism Handout. This handout explains that plagiarism can be both accidental or intentional and that certain consequences may be implemented in both circumstances. It also discusses how plagiarism exists in both academic and professional spheres. Finally, It defines each type of plagiarism so that students have these definitions for future reference.

    Students can then work on the Different Types of Plagiarism Graphic Organizer. This activity explores nine scenarios involving plagiarism.  These scenarios are common instances of plagiarism that you've likely experienced in your classroom.  Students must label the type of plagiarism and explain their reasoning behind their choice.  

    To consolidate this activity, a comprehensive answer key has been included.

    2. Editable Plagiarism Policy - Plagiarism Questions, Worksheets, 4-Corner Activity

    This plagiarism lesson includes plagiarism questions and an editable plagiarism policy template to establish classroom guidelines for handling plagiarism.

    The Plagiarism Questionnaire uses a Likert scale to gauge your students' understanding of plagiarism. It asks students questions regarding accidental plagiarism, self-plagiarism, and assisting others to plagiarize. It also prompts them to discuss the consequences of different types of plagiarism and whether or not paraphrasing and citations are always effective strategies to avoid plagiarism.

    This resource also includes a set of Likert Scale Posters that can be used to facilitate a "4 Corners" activity to share students’ opinions about plagiarism.  Set these posters around the room, with the "Neutral" Likert ranking in the middle of the classroom.  After completing the plagiarism questionnaire, students can move to different stations around the room to indicate how they align with each statement.  Students can discuss as a group and share their thoughts with the rest of the class. I like to have "neutral" students move to a corner of the room after hearing their classmates' opinions.

    This Plagiarism Questionnaire and 4-Corners Activity will help to formatively assess your students' views towards plagiarism. This can help you to lay a foundation for collaboratively writing a classroom policy. The Editable Plagiarism Policy Template is formatted for Google Docs® and Microsoft Word®. Students will be prompted to define plagiarism, outline steps they can take to avoid plagiarism, and establish consequences for plagiarizing. After writing this policy together, simply print it off and have each student sign it.
