Transcript

  • 1. ACADEMIC HONESTY Don’t plagiarize!
  • 2. What is plagiarism?
    • Plagiarism is academic stealing and lying. An individual uses someone else’s words or ideas and fails to give proper, if any, credit to the original source.
    • (Standley Lake High School Policy, 1)
  • 3. What kinds of things need to be documented?
    • Books
    • Web sites
    • Magazines and newspapers
    • Radio or television
    • Speeches
    • Government sources
    • Letters
  • 4. What are examples of plagiarism?
    • Word for word copying from a source without using quotes and citing the source.
    • Letting someone else hand in your work as their own.
    • Turning in someone else’s work as your own.
    • Copying another person’s work.
    • Having someone else do an assignment for you.
    • Paraphrasing or summarizing a document without documentation.
    • Buying a paper/assignment and turning it in as your own.
    • Cutting and pasting from a web site and saying it’s your work.
    • Working together with someone without the teacher’s permission .
  • 5. What does the teacher consider plagiarism?
    • Copying someone else’s homework in class or during study hall because you didn’t finish yours.
    • Taking notes word for word from a PowerPoint or the textbook and then putting those exact words into an essay.
    • Sharing work when you weren’t given permission to do so.
    • Group work where only one person actually does the work and everyone else copies it.
    • Researching outside information for an essay and not documenting where it came from.
  • 6. Do I have to cite EVERYTHING????
    • No, information that is considered to be common knowledge does not have to be documented.
    • (Lancaster High School, 1)
  • 7. How do I know if it’s common knowledge?
    • Examples of common knowledge:
    • Dates of events
    • Names of important people
    • Facts about specific historical events
    • Most information in your textbooks.
  • 8. Who is guilty of plagiarism?
    • If you write an essay, do an assignment or present information that is not your own work or your own ideas, you are guilty of plagiarism.
    • If you allow someone to copy your work, ideas or assignment and turn it in as their own, you are guilty of plagiarism.
  • 9. Don’t be like Vanilla Ice!
    • Vanilla Ice sampled from David Bowie and Queen’s song Under Pressure without permission.
    • He claimed it was not copied because he changed one note.
    • He ended up settling out of court with them for over $500,000. Vanilla Ice is now “uncool.”
    • This is a perfect example of why you can’t just change one word in a sentence and call it your own!
  • 10. Plagiarism is humiliating! Don’t do it!
    • Milli Vanilli was a pop group that became popular in the late 80s and early 90s.
    • In 1990 they won a Grammy for best new artist.
    • It was then revealed that they had lip synched the album and their Grammy was revoked. Their reputation was forever ruined.
    • Plagiarism follows you through life! Don’t do it!
