  • 6. Paraphrasing Paraphrasing is rewriting something in your own words Must change words and sentence structure Must attribute information to a source
  • 7. Paraphrase practice From plagiarism.com • “Simply put, plagiarism is the use of another's original words or ideas as though they were your own. Any time you borrow from an original source and do not give proper credit, you have committed plagiarism and violated U.S. copyright laws.” My paraphrase: • According to plagiarism.com, plagiarism happens any time you present someone else’s work as if it was yours. If you don’t give credit to a source, it is a violation of copyright laws.
  • 8. Using Quotes and Citations You can use someone else’s words if you put them in quotation marks and cite the source. Examples: • According to plagiarism.com, “plagiarism is the use of another's original words or ideas as though they were your own. “ • It is a violation of copyright law to present “another’s original words or ideas as though they were your own” because it is considered plagiarism, (plagiarism.com).
  • 9. Putting it Together Use a combination of quotations and paraphrasing in your paper Analyze the information and include your own thoughts and ideas Create a Works Cited page at the end of your paper listing all sources you used
  • 10. And above all … ASK ME IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS!
  • 11. Works Cited “What is Plagiarism?” Plagiarism.org. Accessed 12 Dec 2010. <http://www.plagiarism.org/learning_center/w hat_is_plagiarism.html> “What is Plagiarism?” SSS Library Research Guides. Accessed 12 Dec 2010. <http://classguides.lib.uconn.edu/content.php ?pid=50827&sid=386249>
