Do Not Plagiarize Material
! (Always give credit to the author)
ACADEMIC HONESTY is a MUST!
Using Outside Resources Makes Your Research Stronger!

BUT you
MUST
put the information in your own words and you
MUST
create a
bibliography
page also known as a works cited page
http://www.readwritethink.org/files/resources/lesson_images/lesson1062/plagiarismexamples.pdf
The easiest way to do this is by using a graphic organizer and visiting sites such as:

There are different types of plagiarism

It's not only the cut and paste type.

Check out this video.....
When Searching......

Make sure that your search is specific to what you need!


Example:
You are researching the causes of earthquakes

Instead of typing "earthquakes" in a search engine, type "earthquakes"
AND
" causes" in order to narrow down your search
"AND" "NOT" and "OR" are Boolean Operators
Happy Researching!!!

Plagiarism Trackers Used by Students and Teachers
The Consequences of Plagiarism



"Plagiarism will not be tolerated. Students who borrow or copy material must acknowledge the source. Failure to do so could result in a "0."

Teachers may also contact your parents/guardians and have you re-do the assignment.
You might as well do it right the first time!

The Inquiry Process
is an approach to learning
whereby students find and use a
variety of sources of information and
ideas to increase their understanding
of a problem, topic or issue of importance.
It requires more than simply
answering questions or getting a right
answer. It involves investigation,
exploration, search, quest, research,
pursuit and study.

Approaches to Research are
