Cat assignment 8

  1. 1. Plagiarism Cassidy Lunceford CAT 200 Assignment
  2. 2. Plagiarism • According to Dictionary.com, the definition of plagiarism is described as an act or instance of using or closely imitating the language and thoughts of another author without authorization and the representation of that authors work as one’s own, as by not crediting the original author
  3. 3. Why is plagiarism wrong? • You are taking the credit for someone else's work, which is lying and stealing • You are showing disrespect to you classroom peers who have worked hard to do their own work • You show disrespect to your teacher and have them question your honesty and abilities • You are cheating • Plagiarism is against the law
  4. 4. The Importance • If you are researching, writing a paper, or taking what you know from a book or website, it is important to always put it in your own words! • Never copy something word-for-word • Plagiarism is not necessary to get your point across!
  5. 5. Prevention • If writing a paper, the teacher could allow the students to draw a piece of paper the day that the paper is due. Whichever student draws the piece of paper with the black dot, that paper will be thoroughly checked for plagiarism. This method makes sure that the students to not plagiarize because there is a chance that they will draw the black dot. If the teacher finds that the student has plagiarized, their grade will show it.
  6. 6. Software Prevention • There are many programs that can be downloaded or used to check for plagiarism. • We will now go to a few of the websites to see the differences. • http://www.duplichecker.com/ • http://sourceforge.net/projects/antiplagi arismc/ • http://www.plagiarismchecker.com/help -teachers.php
  7. 7. Assignment • For an assignment, I will give each student a slip of paper with a different paragraph on it. The student’s job is to re-write the paragraph in their own words. This is a good way to make sure the students know what they can do to avoid plagiarism. It is also good for the teacher because he or she can see which student understands and which students may need remediation.
