  3. 3. Thanks to the OWL at Purdue for information, definitions, and exercises. http://owl.english.purdue.edu/
  4. 4.  Obviously plagiarism:     Buying, stealing, or borrowing a paper (including from the web) Hiring someone to write your paper for you Copying large sections of text from a source without quotation marks or proper citation Also plagiarism:   Using a source too closely when paraphrasing Building on someone else’s words or ideas without citing their work (spoken or written)
  5. 5.      Words or ideas presented in a magazine, book, newspaper, song, TV program, movie, Web page, computer program, letter, advertisement, or any other medium Information you gain through interviewing or conversing with another person, face to face, over the phone, or in writing When you copy the exact words or a unique phrase When you reprint any diagrams, illustrations, charts, pictures, or other visual materials When you reuse or repost any electronically-available media, including images, audio, video, or other media
  6. 6. Document any words, ideas, or other productions that originate somewhere outside of you.
  7. 7.    You do not need to cite information that is considered “common knowledge” or is a generally accepted fact. Generally, something does not need to be cited if it is a fact that can be found in at least three reliable sources. Examples: The sky is blue. Approximately 6 million Jews were killed in the Holocaust.  The Pythagorean theorem is a2 + b2 = c2.    “Common knowledge” applies to specific, brief facts.
  8. 8.  You do not need to cite when you are writing your own experiences, your own observations, your own insights, your own thoughts, or your own conclusions on a subject.
  9. 9.  There are three ways to use the work of someone else:     Quoting Paraphrasing Summarizing Because we want you to build your own understanding of the information through an assignment, most of your use of another person’s work will be in paraphrases and summaries.
  10. 10.   Paraphrasing involves putting a passage from source material into your own words. A paraphrase must also be attributed to the original source. Paraphrased material is usually shorter than the original passage, taking a somewhat broader segment of the source and condensing it slightly. Paraphrasing is a useful skill because the mental process required for successful paraphrasing helps you to grasp the full meaning of the original.
  11. 11. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Reread the original passage until you understand its full meaning. Set the original aside, and write your paraphrase on a note card. Jot down a few words below your paraphrase to remind you later how you envision using this material. At the top of the note card, write a key word or phrase to indicate the subject of your paraphrase. Check your rendition with the original to make sure that your version accurately expresses all the essential information in a new form. Use quotation marks to identify any unique term or phraseology you have borrowed exactly from the source. Record the source (including the page) on your note card so that you can credit it easily if you decide to incorporate the material into your paper.
  12. 12.  Summarizing involves putting the main idea(s) into your own words, including only the main point(s). Once again, it is necessary to attribute summarized ideas to the original source. Summaries are significantly shorter than the original and take a broad overview of the source material.
  13. 13. Go over the answers with iClickers
  14. 14.       What is SDT? What is Type X? What is Type I? What are the three nutrients to Type I behavior? What connections do you see to “Brainology”? Do you consider yourself Type X or Type I? Do you want to stay that way?
  15. 15.      What is Pink doing in the introduction? What is Pink doing in chapter 1? What is Pink doing in chapter 2? What is Pink doing in chapter 3? What do you think Pink will do in Part Two?
  16. 16.     Look at the paragraph on page 75 What are the main points of the paragraph? How can we paraphrase that paragraph? Make sure we include a proper citation!
  17. 17.    With a partner or by yourself, choose one interesting paragraph from chapter 3 (a paragraph where Pink makes a specific point) Paraphrase that paragraph and include a proper citation Bring the paragraph to me and when you get it checked off, you are free to go to break/free work time
