  6. 6. Your Role as Teachers <br />Develop a Strong Course Policy on Plagiarism<br />“When writers use material from other sources, they must acknowledge the source. Not doing so is called plagiarism, which means using without credit the ideas of another. You are therefore cautioned (1) against using, word for word, without acknowledgement, phrases, sentences, paragraphs, etc., from the printed or manuscript material of others; (2) against using with only slight changes the materials of another; and (3) against using the general plan, the main headings, or a rewritten form of someone else’s material. These cautions apply to the work of other students as well as to the published work of professional writers (Weiser 2011).”<br />Use a Contract in Your Syllabus<br />I, , have received a copy of the syllabus for BIOLOGY 102. <br />I understand the policies outlined in the syllabus, including the grading, assignments and expectations. <br />I understand that disruptive behavior such as cell phone use, texting, listening to an iPod and/or disrespectful behavior and language may result in my dismissal from the classroom. <br />I understand that cheating will not be tolerated.<br />SignatureDate<br />Stolley and Brizee. 2011.
