    • 9. It’s out there, why not reuse it? www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32657885 Image by Duane Hoffmann Gabriel, T. (2010, August 1) Plagiarism Lines Blur for Students in the Digital Age. The New York Times. Retrieved from http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/02/educa tion/02cheat.html“If you are not so worried about presenting yourself as absolutelyunique, then it’s O.K.…if you say other people’s words, it’s O.K. if you say things you don’tbelieve,…it’s O.K. if you write papers you couldn’t care less about becausethey accomplish the task, which is turning something in and getting agrade… and it’s O.K. if you put words out there without getting any credit.” ~Susan D.

    • 11. Why does it matter? Newitz, A. (2012, January 16) You are bitching about the wrong things when you read an article about science. I09 blog. Retrieved from http://io9.com/5873948/you- are-bitching-about-the-wrong-things-when- you-read-an-article-about-science“Science is designed to challenge our common sense assumptionsabout the world because they are often wrong. Sometimes,however, common sense turns out to be right. Which is whyoccasionally science seems to prove the obvious. But thats notscience being useless - its science doing what it does best, whichis applying rigor and rationality to anecdote and dogma.”
    • 12. Why does it matter? Discussion on the article • Why is it important to attribute information to a source? • Why is anecdotal information still so compelling? • What does this have to do with you? In real life? In school?
    • 13. The point is… No matter where you are, you will constantly need to assess the information around you In order to be an informed consumer you should know how to evaluate the information you acquire In order to support your own arguments you should know how to research your question and cite your sources To insure that information is spread fairly and openly practicing proper citation is a practice you should make a habit of now
