Plagiarism is complicated. Students are expected to learn about plagiarism on their own. Little or no formal education about plagiarism is provided to students. The literature suggests that proactive education is the best way to prevent plagiarism, not plagiarism detection software or other reactive solutions. This workshop will proactively assist students in learning about plagiarism and how to avoid plagiarizing.

Plagiarism or NotStudent Z was interested in getting a good grade on the final paper, but writing was always her weakest point, so she found two anonymous articles online, combined them, used several paragraphs from each article, and presented it as her work. Using online anonymous articles is still considered plagiarism. It is not plagiarism because it was found on the Internet, and the student mixed up the articles.
ParaphrasingRead the following quotes and choose the best paraphrase from the choices given below the quote.“But perhaps the most heroic act of all was staying true to Rowling’s vision. ‘Think about it,’ says Columbus. ‘If they had cast American actors or put cheerleaders at Hogwarts—and all these hideous ideas were indeed being pitched and discussed at the time—Harry Potter would have been one movie, not a series. It would have died.’” –Jensen, Jeff. “So Long, Harry.” Entertainment Weekly 8 July 2011: 32-35. Print. The most heroic act of all in Harry Potter was staying true to Rowling’s vision and not including things like American actors or cheerleaders at Hogwarts. The Harry Potter movies almost cast American actors or put cheerleaders at Hogwarts, but instead, stayed true to Rowling’s vision. Perhaps the most heroic act of all was staying true to Rowling’s vision and not following hideous ideas like having cheerleaders at Hogwarts. The Harry Potter movies remained true to Rowling’s books and as a result, became a bestselling series rather than a single, failed movie.
