Transcript

  • 1. Understanding & Avoiding Plagiarism ESOL 51 Fall 2007 Adapted from www.plagiarism.org
  • 2. What is plagiarism?
    • Stealing someone’s words or ideas.
    • Pretending that someone’s words or ideas are your own.
    • Using someone’s words or ideas without giving credit.
    • Incorrectly using quotations & paraphrases.
    • In other words, plagiarism is an act of fraud. It involves both stealing someone else's work and lying about it afterward.
  • 3. Question for Discussion
    • What are the consequences for cheating and/or plagiarism in your native country or previous school?
  • 4. Consequences of Plagiarism
    • Read p. 106-108 of your student handbook & planner to understand more about how plagiarism and academic dishonesty is handled at MCTC.
    • Consequences range from a warning to expulsion from the college.
  • 5. What happens if I suspect you of plagiarism?
    • I will ask you to come to my office visit to discuss why I suspect plagiarism.
    • If I determine you have not plagiarized, I will help you clarify your writing and explain how to avoid plagiarism in the future.
    • If I determine that you have plagiarized, I will submit a report to Judicial Affairs and you will receive a zero on the assignment.
  • 6. The second time you plagiarize:
    • I will submit a second report to Judicial Affairs. The Judicial Affairs committee and the dean will review the report and take appropriate action. This could include probation or suspension from the college.
    • You will automatically receive a NC (No Credit) in this course.
  • 7. How to Avoid Plagiarism
    • Talk to your teacher.
    • Be honest. If you use outside sources, tell your reader where you got your information.
    • Be careful. Sometimes plagiarism is unintentional.
    • Know how to paraphrase and quote correctly.
    • When in doubt, cite your source.
  • 8. Citing Sources
    • In college writing classes, you will write research papers that use outside sources.
    • When you use an outside source, it is your responsibility to tell the reader where the information is from.
    • A citation gives the reader information about the outside source. You must provide enough information so the reader can find the source on his own.
  • 9. Example of a Citation
    • Raimes, A. Grammar Troublespots: A Guide for Student Writers. 3 rd Edition. Cambridge University Press. 2004
  • 10. Quotations & Paraphrases
    • A quotation is when you use the author’s exact words. Put the exact words in quotation marks.
    • A paraphrase is when you use YOUR words to summarize what the author said.
