Transcript of HAIKU

Haiku is a form of poetry, first made popular in Japan, which has become appreciated around the world. Haiku poets are challenged to convey a vivid message in only 17 syllables.
Haiku strategies
Zero Tolerance to Plagiarism
Plagiarism a failing grade for an assignment or a whole course.
Structural Rules:
• Use exactly 17 syllables
• Syllables are arranged in three lines of 5-7-5
• Avoid similes and metaphors
• Refers to a season of the year
Haiku poems can describe anything, but are seldom complicated or hard to understand. Almost all Haiku has a dominant impression, or main idea, that appeals strongly to one of the five senses.
Each Haiku must contain a kigo, a season word, which indicates what season of the year the Haiku is set. For example, blossoms would indicate spring, snow would give the idea of winter, mosquitos would imply summertime. The seasonal words isn't always that obvious, you might needs to consider the theme of the poem to find it. For example:
Clouds appear and bring -
to men a chance to rest from
looking at the moon
The seasonal word in this Haiku is clouds, indicating the rainy season.
Now, write your own haiku
concise - marked by brevity of expression or statement;
expressing much in few words; clear and precise
unnecessary REPETITION
wordy - Tending to use, using, or expressed in more words than are necessary to convey meaning.
Excessive wordiness or repetition in expression.

includes: buying, stealing, or borrowing a paper (including, of course, copying an entire paper or article from the Web); hiring someone to write your paper for you; and copying large sections of text from a source without quotation marks or proper citation.
How to avoid plagiarism?

Document sources:
• Words or ideas presented in a magazine, book, newspaper, song, TV program, movie, Web page, computer program, letter, advertisement, or any other medium
• Information you gain through interviewing or conversing with another person, face to face, over the phone, or in writing
• When you copy the exact words or a unique phrase
• When you reprint any diagrams, illustrations, charts, pictures, or other visual materials
• When you reuse or repost any electronically-available media, including images, audio, video, or other media

Although paraphrasing techniques are used in summary writing,
paraphrasing does not aim to shorten the length of a text, merely to
restate the text.
For example,
Evidence of a lost civilisation has been found off the coast of China.
could be paraphrased:
Remains of an ancient society have been discovered in the sea near China
A good paraphrase is significantly different from the wording of the
original, without altering the meaning at all.

a) Changing vocabulary:
studies > research
society > civilisation
mud > deposits
b) Changing word class:
Egypt (n.) > Egyptian (adj.)
mountainous regions (adj. + n.) > in the mountains (n.)
c) Changing word order:
Ancient Egypt collapsed > the collapse of Egyptian society began
