PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

With this lesson plan, students will be able to define and identify different types of intentional and unintentional plagiarism. They will also brainstorm reasons why people plagiarize works and the consequences that can apply if caught. They will also be able to determine why plagiarism is damaging to their academic careers (beyond failing grades).

The first few minutes (2-3 minutes approximately) of class will allow students to think about the topics of discussion. Next, introduce concepts related to plagiarism as outlined in the PowerPoint presentation. These activities include (1) students identifying examples of patchwriting, (2) a practice assignment asking them to use proper paraphrasing techniques, and (3) a 3-2-1 activity asking them to recap important themes in the lesson.

This resource is not what I would call "comprehensive." I use it with 12th grade students who have an understanding of “common knowledge,” for instance. They also have experience citing sources, which is why I spend very little time demonstrating this for them. You are welcome to build upon this resource if you wish.
