Online plagarism

  1. 1. Online Plagiarism<br />This PowerPoint is intended for a 6th-8thgrade research class. The class is taught for a 2 week period. The focus is on learning how to use different types of resources and producing different types of projects. Unfortunately, in the past this class has not had a strong focus on properly citing sources. This has been touched on, but the end product has been the main focus. The new instructor has asked for my help and we are collaborating to revamp this curriculum. This class is now actually being taught in the computer lab in the media center at least 3 out of the 5 days of the week for this one period.<br />The short pretest would be given at the beginning of the lesson to initiate thought and conservation on the topic. There are a few questions that go beyond online plagiarism, but this is a great time to touch on other issues as well. The slideshow will, of course, guide my instruction, but I will go into much more detail as we discuss this topic. At the end of the lesson we would go through the pretest again.<br />After we have gone through the pretest and ppt, I plan on letting the students get on the computers and explore the plagiarism tutorial at<br />

  3. 3. Is Online Plagiarism a Problem?<br />“According to a 1998 survey by Who's Who Among American High School Students, four out of five college-bound high school students admit to cheating on schoolwork, and a recent Center for Academic Integrity study reports that 80 percent of college students admit to cheating at least once” (Plagiarism FAQ, 2005) .<br />“According to a 2003 study by Donald McCabe, 38 percent of students admitted to cut-and-paste Internet plagiarism in the previous year. (Rutgers University/Center for Academic Integrity Study, August 2003)” (Latest Facts, 2005).<br />
  4. 4. Are You Plagiarizing?<br />
  5. 5. Do You Even Know?<br />
  6. 6. What is Plagiarism?<br />“Plagiarism is defined as portrayal of another’s work or ideas as one’s own. <br />Examples of plagiarism include:<br /><ul><li>failing to use quotation marks when quoting from a source
  7. 7. failing to document distinctive ideas from a source
  8. 8. fabricating or inventing sources” (Academic Honesty, 2003). </li></ul>“Using the work (or part of it) of another person and claiming it as your own.” (Glossary of Intellectual Property Terms, 2004).<br />
  9. 9. What are some examples of plagiarism?<br />Copying and pasting text from a website and not citing the website in your bibliography.<br />Copying and pasting exact text from a website and not using quotations. (Even if you cite the website in your bibliography.)<br />Turning in another student’s work as your own with or without their knowledge.<br />
  10. 10. Examples Continued…<br />Paraphrasing or summarizing (using your own words) text from a source without citing the source in your bibliography.<br />Buying a paper from an online source. (Colleges and Universities are very aware of these sites and this can ruin not only your academic career, but can follow you throughout your life.)<br />
  11. 11. Are You Confused Yet??<br />Do You Feel Like You to Have to Cite Everything? <br />
  12. 12. Information That Doesn’t Have To Be Cited…<br /><ul><li>Your own experiences, your own observations, your own insights, your own thoughts, your own conclusions about a subject
  13. 13. Generally accepted facts
  14. 14. Writing up your own experimental results
  15. 15. Common knowledge — folklore, common sense observations, shared information within your field of study or cultural group</li></ul>(Avoiding Plagiarism, 2004)<br />
  16. 16. How Do You Know If Something Is Common Knowledge?<br />You find the same information undocumented in at least five other sources<br />You think it is information that your readers will already know<br />You think a person could easily find the information with general reference sources<br />(Avoiding Plagiarism, 2004)<br />
  17. 17. Did You Know….<br />There are websites on the Internet to assist teachers in finding out if work has been plagiarized.<br />For Example:<br />turnitin<br />Ithenticate<br />
  18. 18. You May Encounter Different Citation Styles Throughout Your Academic Career.<br />Different teachers and schools may require a certain type of citation style. Some examples of the different styles are:<br /><ul><li>MLA (Modern Language Association)
  19. 19. APA (American Psychological Association)
  20. 20. Turabian
  21. 21. Chicago</li></ul><br />Your teacher will go over specifics about the style.<br />
  22. 22. REMEMBER…<br />No matter what the style is just<br />make SURE you GIVE CREDIT<br />where CREDIT is DUE.<br />
  23. 23. What is a Reference List or Bibliography?<br />A bibliography or reference list, comes at the end of your paper listing all the works (books, articles, Internet sites, etc.) you've quoted, paraphrased or otherwise used to create your paper. The citations are usually listed alphabetically by the authors' last names and typically include the name of the publication, the publisher/date of publication, and the volume, issue and pages if applicable. How works are internally cited and how the citations are arranged in the "Works Cited" page will be determined by the Style Guide (MLA, APA and Turabian) specified by your teacher.
