Product Description
Plagiarism...what a "downer" topic! For years, I dreaded teaching it because students thought I was the Wicked Witch who was out to get them for every missing quotation mark in their essays (or at least that's how I felt as I taught them about the rules of citing sources). In an effort to make writing in general more fun and accessible to students, I came up with fun, engaging, non-intimidating ways to approach concepts like plagiarism. Teachers can convey the importance of plagiarism without putting everyone in a bad mood. :)

In this minilesson, which could take anywhere from 2-4 days if you have 45 minute class periods, you will find a handful of creative, differentiated tools to make plagiarizing clear and relevant.

1. A suggested lesson overview
2. A PDF presentation (8 slides covering what plagiarism is, what different types exist, how students can avoid it, and what to do if they are still confused)
3. Appealing student notes / graphic organizer
4. 4 activity sheets or task cards that prompt students to read excerpts from high-interest texts about candy and then put their citation skills to the test
5. 1 practice sheet that encourages students to paraphrase and directly quote the same research to help them understand the options they have for giving credit to the source
6. A plagiarism task card game
7. A "Can You Spy the Plagiarism?" class activity
8. A pre- and post- test / quiz to track students' understanding and growth
9. A video lesson which can be used in class or for homework
10. Links to further videos and full-text articles that you can use for further practice, if necessary
11. Answer keys

This mini-lesson / mini-unit can be used before any writing unit, as a refresher during the revision process, or even after passing back graded essays when students are allowed to fix their mistakes, learn from them, and resubmit for full or partial credit.

I hope this product makes teaching about plagiarizing more fun, relevant, and understandable for your students!
