  2. 2. What is plagiarism? Merriam-Webster dictionary defines it as… • pla·gia·rism the act of using another person's words or ideas without giving credit to that person : the act of plagiarizing something "Plagiarism." Merriam-Webster.com. Merriam-Webster, n.d. Web. 15 Sept. 2013. <http://www.merriam- webster.com/dictionary/plagiarism>.
  3. 3. Would you steal someone’s pencil, toy, or ice cream money and pretend that it is yours? Would you take their homework, erase their name and write yours on it? That’s STEALING and LYING…saying that it is work that you did…that’s PLAGIARISM!
  4. 4. It isn’t right to take someone else’s words, or ideas and not give creditto them as the creator. So what can you do to avoid plagiarizing?
  5. 5. 1. Paraphrase Paraphrasing means putting what you have read into your own words. You can paraphrase by reading something, thinking about what it means, and then restating it in your own words. Original: Giraffes like Acacia leaves and hay. They can consume 75 pounds of food a day. Paraphrase: A giraffe can eat up to 75 pounds of Acacia leaves and hay everyday. "Examples of Paraphrasing." YourDictionary, n.d. Web. 15 September 2013. <http://examples.yourdictionary.com/examples/examples-of-paraphrasing.html>.
  6. 6. 2. Quote Quoting is when you write down word for word what someone said, and use “quotation” marks to show which words are not your own. Quoted Original: “Giraffes like Acacia leaves and hay. They can consume 75 pounds of food a day.” "Examples of Paraphrasing." YourDictionary, n.d. Web. 15 September 2013. <http://examples.yourdictionary.com/examples/examples-of-paraphrasing.html>.
  7. 7. Citations or Citing It is important to tell where you got the information from whether your are paraphrasing or quoting someone else. This gives the creator proper credit for their ideas and lets others know where they can find more information about the topic. There are citation formats and wizards that help you properly give credit to or cite others. Some include: Did you notice any citations in this presentation?
  8. 8. Remember… If you are not sure if you are plagiarizing, you can always ask for help from your teacher or media specialist.
