  4. 4. How would you define honesty? The quality or condition of having or displaying strong moral principles, especially with regard to lying, cheating, or stealing; fair dealing; truthfulness; integrity. -Oxford English Dictionary, 2017.
  5. 5. Who do you expect to have honesty? How does honesty relate to education or college?
  6. 6. Plagiarism is (1) Using another writer's words or ideas without documentation (a reference list and in-text citations), (2) Using another writer's exact words without quotation marks, and (3) Paraphrasing or summarizing someone else's ideas using wording or sentence structures that are too similar to the original.
  7. 7. How to avoid plagiarism
  8. 8. Quoting Paraphrasing Summarizing
  9. 9. QUOTING
  10. 10. 1WHEN QUOTING: •Use quotation marks (like “this”) to show which words come from an outside source. •When quoting, be sure to type the source exactly as the original. •Include an in-text citation to tell readers the author of the quote.
  11. 11. What is an in-text citation?  A short entry placed at the end of a sentence that shows the outside source you used.  Citations start and finish with a parenthesis and contain information about the source you have used.  The information inside the citation is different for individual stylesheets like MLA or APA.  Example of MLA: He said, “I believe this is a great idea” (Smith, 7).
  12. 12. ORIGINAL: Getting up early for an 8:00 a.m. class can be very difficult if you have stayed up all night studying for a test. From an essay by Megan Kowalski, page 3. QUOTE: Getting to class on time is hard “if you have stayed up all night studying for a test” (Kowalski, 3).
  13. 13. PARAPHRASING
  14. 14. 2WHEN PARAPHRASING: •Change both the words and the formation of the original sentence. •When you paraphrase, you use information from a source, but you use your own words and your own sentence structure. •Include an in-text citation to tell readers the author of the original text that you paraphrased.
  15. 15. ORIGINAL: Getting up early for an 8:00 a.m. class can be very difficult if you have stayed up all night studying for a test. From an essay by Megan Kowalski, page 3. QUOTE: If you have been awake all night studying, it will be hard to wake up for your first class in the morning (Kowalski, 3).
  16. 16. SUMMARIZING
  17. 17. 3WHEN SUMMARIZING: •Condense the main ideas of an entire source using your own words and sentence structure. •Include an in-text citation to tell readers the author of your summary.
  18. 18. SOURCE: I applied to AUM. I completed my application. I received my visa. Next, I bought my plane ticket. My family and I packed my bags. It was hard to pack all of my clothes and shoes. At the airport, I went through Customs. When I arrived at AUM, I was tired but excited. Now I am a new student in America. From an email by Xiasheng Pan, 2014. SUMMARY: After being accepted to AUM, he packed and flew to America. Now he is eager to be a new student in the US (Pan).
  19. 19. Some guidelines for summarizing Include only the main ideas Leave out the small details Use your own words Indicate the source
  20. 20. Top three types of plagiarism
  21. 21. 1. Copy and Paste 2. Word Change 3. Remix
  22. 22. What is “Copy and Paste”? When a student’s paper contains a large amount of text from another source. Students copy large pieces of text to “fill in” between their own phrases or sentences.
  23. 23. Copy and Paste
  24. 24. What is “Word Change”? When students copy large sections of text and try to paraphrase by changing only a few words with synonyms (similar words). To paraphrase correctly, change both the wording and phrasing of the original paper.
  25. 25. Word Change
  26. 26. What is “Remix”? When students copy and paste phrases or sentences from many sources to create one piece of writing.
