Plagiarism is a growing problem with today's students, and too often they commit it without realizing it! This lesson goes into the various ways one can commit plagiarism, knowingly or accidentally, and the ramifications of that act.

The lesson makes use of hypothetical scenarios, reflecting real-life situations many senior high students find themselves in, not knowing if they're behaving ethically or not. It also includes an excellent TedTalk video, which describes the many types of plagiarism.

This activity is useful in ANY class, or even to begin a school year or integrate into a media center presentation on the acceptable use of technology.

For a younger audience, see the same lesson for sale in my store, aimed at junior high students.
