Transcript of Plagiarism

Plagiarism A piece of writing that has been copied from someone else and is presented as being your own work
Why shouldn't I plagiarize? You could be required to redo the assignment You could be suspended from school. You could fail the class. What is legal? Paraphrasing To restate, concisely and in your own words, the sense or meaning of a text or passage from a book or journal article, etc. ( You still must cite your source.) Quoting www.newcastle.edu.au/service/library Not more than 10% of your paper can be direct quotes.
(You must cite sources). Don't just change a few words and think

Common knowledge
Accepted facts
Your own opinions or experiences Practice, practice, practice paraphasing. It is a skill you can acquire. Citing Sources Find out what citation style
your teacher wants you to use... MLA is usually for English
and some humanities. APA is for social sciences. Chicago is used by history
and some humanities. CSE used by sciences. Use an online citation
builder such as bibme.org Take only a few notes in direct quotations. Paraphrase the rest. This will keep you from having too many quotes in your paper.
