Cheating and Plagarism
Transcript of Cheating and Plagarism
students and teachers agree that most students do
cheat at some point. 86% of high school students agreed. http://www.stanford.edu/class/engr110/cheating.html Cheating has both increased and become easier for students. With access to the internet and cell phones, it is easier than ever to cheat. One way cheating has increased is by plagiarism. A Growing Problem According to one recent survey of middle
schoolers, 2/3 of respondents reported
cheating on exams, while 9/10 reported
copying another's homework. http://www.stanford.edu/class/engr110/cheating.html Talk to your group members and decide on a definition for plagiarism.
What does it look like?
Who does it?
When does it occur? What is Plagiarism? With all the access to internet sources, students are more tempted than ever to "borrow" whole sentences, paragraphs, and even entire papers. How Can I Avoid Plagiarism? Why? Why is this happening?
Could it be that students simply do not know how to correctly cite source and paraphrase? Students are not only cheating on tests, but they are coping homework assignments from other students and downloading entire papers off the internet. These are all forms of CHEATING.
Think of cheating like stealing - you are stealing someone's work and pretending that it is your own. Plagiarism Plagiarism is when you use someone else's work and try to pass it off as your own. 1. Find a source that contains helpful information
2. Read the source
3. Write down the main points of the article
4. Close the book or website you got the information from and try rewriting what the passage said in your own words
5. Cite the source at the end of the sentence/paragraph How to Paraphrase 1. Read the following article
2. Write down the main points
3. After you are done reading it, turn it over and try rewriting the main points of the article in your own words. Try It! Read the article you have on your desk.
Try paraphrasing it
(Read, notes, rewrite in your own words) Teens and Cheating http://www.usnews.com/education/blogs/on-education/2009/06/23/one-third-of-teens-use-cellphones-to-cheat-in-school Turn and Talk Turn to your partner and read what you have paraphrased. Then, listen to what they have written.
How are they similar? How are they different? Plagiarism can be avoided by PARAPHRASING http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://derdo.files.wordpress.com/2009/07/calvinonethics1.jpg%3Fw%3D604%26h%3D405&imgrefurl=http://derdo.wordpress.com/2009/07/28/calvin-and-hobbes-on-ethics/&h=405&w=604&sz=91&tbnid=nFVQqQ__Yuag5M:&tbnh=76&tbnw=114&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dcalvin%2Band%2Bhobbes%2Bcheating%2Bcomic%26tbm%3Disch%26tbo%3Du&zoom=1&q=calvin+and+hobbes+cheating+comic&docid=dIazFQOjfxa6JM&hl=en&sa=X&ei=e_y3T9zJBYnK9gTO47meCg&ved=0CGkQ9QEwBQ&dur=358 Final Thoughts Paraphrasing is NOT putting quotes around whole paragraphs you find online
You still need to CITE your source even if you paraphrase Paraphrasing is NOT just changing one or two words in the paragraph and then say it's your own Knowledge Check True or False? 1. Borrowing a friend's paper is not cheating; its copying.
2. You have to give credit to your source, even if you paraphrase.
3. Paraphrasing is when you put something into your own words.
4. I can use a paper if I bought it online. I paid for it, therefore I can use it.
5. You can use the original version of something to help you paraphrase. 1. False
5. False How Did You Do? Find your first source.
