  • The “Pledge”Bias except for opinioned projects. Always strive for fair and balanced reporting/ researching
  • From MLA 7th ed: “Plagiarism is derived from the Latin Word plagiarius (“kidnapper”), to plagiarize means “to commit literary theft” and to “present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source” – Merriam-Webster’s collegiate Dictionary 11th ed; 2003Why Should you care:Honor, integrity, Trust (Harpeth Hall virtues)U represent not just your self buy your school ,your parents, and your beliefsAcademic disciplinary repercussions: expulsionEx. In 2002 reports of wide spread plagiarism led to a 20 month long investigation at the Univ. of Va which ultimately led to the expulsion of over 45 students. Teachers are not dumb. They know every trick in the book and they are looking for plagiarism. When you get to college they even use software to detect plagiarism. At Hopkins we used TurnitIn. *Turnitin for Admissions is used to detect plagiarism in college applications.
  • Famous Examples of Plagiarism:- Hunger Games and Battle RoyaleA young Helen Keller was accused in 1892 of plagiarizing Margaret T. Canby's story The Frost Fairies in her short story The Frost King. She was brought before a tribunal of the Perkins Institute for the Blind, where she was acquitted by a single vote. She said she was worried she may have read The Frost Fairies and forgotten it, "remained paranoid about plagiarism ever after"[47][48] and said that this led her to write an autobiography: the one thing she knew must be originalIn 1973 The Beatles were sued for plagiarizing Chuck Berry's "You Can't Catch Me" in their hit "Come Together". John Lennon and producer Morris Levy signed an agreement before trial. (wikipedia)
  • The best way to avoid plagiarizing is to be aware of what you are doing (researching, writing, brainstorming) and to always give credit where its due.The burden of proof is on you. You can not claim ignorance. It is your responsibility to cite where every source came from.If anything is not wholly and 100% an original idea or product then you MUST cite it.NoodleTools will help you format your cites but when in doubt add as much information as possible. The key is to give enough information that a stranger would be able to track down that source. Citations are like breadcrumbs leading back to the original source that you found.At Harpeth Hall we use MLA citation format and while the library does have copies of the MLA handbook the best way to keep a record of your sources and to format your citations is through NoodleTools. I will cover NoodleTools and it’s features at the end of this lesson.

  • What if you want to look beyond a database and search the open web?
  • Boolean SearchingBroaden or narrow your search by combing words or phrases using the Boolean operators AND, OR, and NOT.The results of performing Boolean searches are sometimes illustrated by the diagrams below (called Venn diagrams.) The diagrams show graphically howusing the AND operator narrows a search,using OR broadens a search,and using NOT excludes material from a search.Many databases and search engines have an Advanced Search interface that allows for Boolean searching; you can also try just using a Boolean operator in the main search box.
  • Congratulations! You’ve all found excellent and appropriate resources for your project. You’ve done the reading and are now ready to write your paper. What do you do with all of those resources that you’ve used? By now, Everyone know that you have to give credit where it’s due and avoid plagiarizing. So how do you create a bibliography?
