Plagiarism Prevention for Elementary Students
Transcript of Plagiarism Prevention for Elementary Students

Paulette Stanich What IS plagiarism? Webster's Dictionary defines plagiarism as stealing or passing off one's ideas OR words as YOUR OWN.
IF You want to use someone else's ideas or words, you need to give them credit by citing properly. Let's play a little game called "Plagiarism, or NO Plagiarism" First Question: What if you turn in someone else's work and put YOUR name on it?
PLAGIARISM!!! Second Question: What if you copy someone's idea that you got from the internet? PLAGIARISM Third Question: What if you copy and paste from the internet? What if you copy a picture from Google images and cite the website properly? NOT PLAGIARISM!!!
great job giving credit to your sources!! Fourth Question: PLAGIARISM! SO, Now that you know what plagiarism IS, let's talk about what you need to do to avoid plagiarizing someone else's work. Use "Quotation Marks" around any words or phrases that you copied directly from the source. THEN, Remember: Even IF you put someone else's ideas in your own words, it is plagiarizing if you do not properly cite your source! Don't forget to list ALL your sources at the end of your paper. Websites like Citation machine or easybib are a great place to go to find out how to properly cite your source. You may be wondering... What could happen to me if I do plagiarize and get caught? Since plagiarism is STEALING,
you are breaking the law and can get into serious trouble. So if plagiarism is against the law, why do students risk doing it? Some students plagiarize because they feel overwhelmed and think they won't get a good grade in the class if they don't get the PERFECT answer. Some students plagiarize because they are afraid to ask for help. Some students plagiarize because it is just TOO easy with internet access. Finally, some plagiarize because they honestly DON'T know that they are plagiarizing. Some students plagiarize because they are not good note takers. So how do your teachers KNOW if you are plagiarizing? There are many types of plagiarism that teachers are able to detect. First, there is what teachers call "Full Plagiarism." This is when a student copies work directly from someone else and puts his/her name on it. There is also "partial plagiarism," which is where a student paraphrases the originial work by re-writing a sentence or using synonyms. THIS IS STILL STEALING someone else's work!!!! So just do the right thing and if you do use someone else's ideas or words...GIVE THEM CREDIT!!! Finally, there is source citation plagiarism, which is where the source is NOT stated correctly. So how do teachers KNOW you have plagiarized? There are many detectors available online to help like plagiarismdetect.com, doccop.com, and turnitin.com. Remember...the internet makes it just TOO easy! Bibliography
