Transcript of Plagiarism (n): the intentional or unintentional practice of

Plagiarism (n):
the intentional or unintentional practice of taking someone else's work or ideas and passing them off as one's own (dictionary.com).

Sharing answers to a test is CHEATING, even after the test!
It gives other students unfair advantages and compromises the integrity of the test.
Reading Cliff's Notes, SparkNotes, Shmoop, etc. IN PLACE of reading the literature is also PLAGIARISM!
Because you haven't read the original text, you are actually "stealing" the content from these websites and acting like they are your own.
While reading these websites may help to aid your understanding of the novel, it should NEVER REPLACE the act of reading the novel.
Plagiarism (n):
from Latin, meaning kidnapper

Plagiarism is literary theft.
Types of Plagiarism:
Oral Presentations
Copying, cutting and pasting, or even rewording ideas without giving credit to the original owner is also PLAGIARISM!
Be sure to put "quotation marks" around exact quotes.
If you do put a person's ideas into your own words (paraphrasing), be sure to still give credit to the original owner in your in-text citation.
Oral Presentations
When creating oral presentations, you must use "quotation marks" around direct quotes as well as include in-text citations either on the slide or at the end of the presentation.
For all PICTURES and GRAPHICS, you must also give credit at the bottom of the picture or at the end of the presentation.
Copying Assignments:
Copying an assignment from another student is PLAGIARISM.
Even when the teacher gives students permission to collaborate on an assignment, it is expected that each student will phrase what is discussed in his/her own words.
Word for word copying is PLAGIARISM and must be avoided!
Consequences for Plagiarism and Cheating:
offense - a score of zero and a conference with the teacher.
offense - another zero for the assignment as well as a call home.
offense - an office referral usually resulting in a conference with the teacher, student, administrator, and the parent(s).
How to AVOID Plagiarism:
When writing about literature, be sure to include IN-TEXT citations after direct quotes or paraphrased ideas.
How to AVOID Plagiarism:
When creating oral presentations, be sure to use in-text citations for direct quotes and/or paraphrased ideas.
