WHY NOT PLAGIARIZE? Plagiarism is not something to be played with and should be taken very seriously. Major consequences can come fromdoing it, some even far as being put in Jail. It is critical to make sure that the information obtained by you is not completely word by word plagiarism. The worst situation to be put in is to copy someone else’s work, knowing that not any of the information received actually came from you brain. Be original, unique, and stay away from stealing anothers ideas.
EXAMPLES OF DIRECT PLAGIARISMThere are a few ways that you can Plagiarize. On this slide, I will present some of the ways you can do so. • 1. By not listing any references on the page of where you obtained the information from. • 2. By Copying another person’s work exactly word by word without any quotation marks and no references. • 3. By paraphrasing the information, but still not listing any references of where you received your information from.

A CONVERSATION BETWEEN 2 STUDENTS Teacher : “Alright students, for homework your going to do a 5page paper report on the biology of animals in science. The due date is by this Friday, and remember, NO PLAGIARISM !”. Johnny: Ahh man I really don’t feel like doing this paper.Ricky: I know right, I wish there was a way to do it without any kind of effort.Johnny: Well…there is one way, but it involves breaking the rules. Ricky: Dude, you don’t mean……Johnny: Yeah Ricky, copying and pasting the whole thing all the way through. In other words, plagiarizing. Ricky: It might be the wrong thing to do, but I’ll do it as long as I don’t have to do anything.
WRONG DECISIONS That conversation above was a perfect example of whatstudents should never do. A wrong decision, those two students Ricky and Johnny decided to do the wrong thing andplagiarize. Later that Friday, the same two students got caughtfor the plagiarism in their projects and as a result, both studentsreceived an F grading for the whole semester. So plagiarizing is not a joke, and making the wrong decision can lead to bad results.
