Transcript of Copy of Mrs. O'Brien's Plagiarism Prezi

Plagiarism -is taking what does not belong to you and pretending that it is yours -is ethically dishonest behaviour no different from stealing someone’s iPod, cell phone or wallet -it is not considered by some to be the equivalent of stealing because they do not see someone else’s ideas and words as having the same kind of worth as an iPod or cell phone. -Webster's Dictionary definiton - to plagiarize is “to use and pass off (someone else’s , ideas, inventions, writings etc.) as one’s own” (767). Consequences of Plagiarism “ When plagiarism is proven, the student will receive a reduced grade, up to and including zero, for the assignment; as well other penalties may be imposed, up to and including possible suspension. Even when one is not caught, the student will have penalized him/herself by not learning as much, nor as well as he/she could have, had one worked conscientiously. Plagiarism is never worth the risk for students who take pride in themselves and their work" (Cathedral Student Agenda Book 16).

- consequences become even more extreme in the
post secondary environment.
-at university you can fail the course or be expelled from the institution. Differentiating Between
Your Ideas and Someone
Else's words -you must be able to tell the
difference between your own
thoughts and someone else’s
words- > if after reading To Kill a Mockingbird
and analyzing Scout’s character you feel
she was courageous, independent and
precocious. You need to be able to explain
why you believe this and what proof you
have from the novel to support your position Common Knowledge - You do not need to quote/cite commonly held knowledge such as the freezing temperature of water being O degrees Celsius or World War II lasting from 1939 to 1945 or that Steven Harper is our current Prime Minister
- all of these facts are understood to be common knowledge, therefore it is not necessary to quote them SAVE YOURSELF -if you learn to reference properly you will save yourself potential mental anguish and loss of marks Works Cited - MLA format is commonly used at Cathedral HS
-a Works Cited page should be
in alphabetical order and should utilize hanging indents (first line at the margin, second and third indented in) " According to Additional Basic Rules New to MLA 2009 from the Purdue Owl MLA Formatting and Style Guide the Medium of publication (either Web or Print) must be added and URLs are unnecessary unless your instructor asks for them (Purdue)
