This is a PowerPoint that teaches students about plagiarism by allowing students to form connections to modern accusations of plagiarism (politicians, musicians, movies). It would be a great resource to go over prior to a research paper or any project. This resource contains all of the following information including graphics, memes, and cartoons to allow visualization of each component:
• Examples of Ways to Plagiarize
• Famous Examples
-Links to two songs that involved plagiarism. (I just showed the first 20 seconds of each song, since it was the intro that was plagiarized.)
• Ways to Avoid Plagiarism
• Citing Sources
-When do I cite?
-How do I cite?
-Examples: MLA & APA
* True/False Quiz (5 questions with answer key)
***After adding a bell ringer, wrap up, and my personal anecdotes to the PPT, this lesson took a little longer than a 50 minute period.
