Plagiarism in the classroom pp presentation

  1. 1. Internet Plagiarism in the ClassroomBy: Shelly Dunsford
  2. 2. Some statistics for you… “approximately 74 percent of students admit plagiarizing at least once during the past school year.” “more than half the high school students surveyed had used material copied from the Internet in research papers.” “Fifteen percent said they had turned in reports copied entirely off the Internet -- or purchased on the Internet.”
  3. 3. Why do students Plagiarize? Intentional vs.• most common type of plagiarism Unintentional• Happens in higher grades
  4. 4. Intentional Plagiarism Thrill/ challenge of trying to get away with plagiarizing. Lack of time. Intimidated by/ lack of confidence in their own work. Their classmates are doing it so why not do it too?
  5. 5. Unintentional Plagiarism They don’t know how to paraphrase. Mix up their own notes with notes from their source. Forget to write down the bibliographical information when researching, and can’t find it again later. Confusion over expectations and what plagiarizing is.
  6. 6. So what can we do as teachers? Prevention, prevention, and more prevention
  7. 7. Preventing Intentional Plagiarism Susan Sieber’s ideas:1. Use specific/ unique research topics for essays.2. Have students do lots of brainstorming, outlining, and prewriting within class time. Plagiarism.org’s ideas:1. Tell students that their perspectives/analyses are more important than the perspectives of other writers.2. Their own life experiences give a more interesting spin on the topic than other writer’s work on the same topic.
  8. 8. Preventing Intentional Plagiarism continued… Education World suggests:1. Taking a paper right off the internet and grading it together as a class.
  9. 9. Preventing Unintentional Plagiarism  Education World suggests to make sure your students: 1. know the specific consequences for plagiarism. 2. All the different forms plagiarism can take. 3. Write the citations next to all of their notes. 4. Give them a handout with clear expectations for citing within the assignment and in the Bibliography
  10. 10. Preventing Unintentional Plagiarism continued…  Plagiarism.org suggests: Teachers have writing workshops within class time where students can practice skills like paraphrasing or note taking.
