Plagarism involves submitting or presenting work in a course as if it were your own work, completed especially for a particular course, when in fact, it is not.
Common Ways for Plagarism to Exist:
The work submitted was done in whole or in part by an individual other than the presenter.
Parts of the work are taken from another source without reference to the original author.
The whole work is copied from another source/
A student submits or presents work in one course which had also been submitted in another (although it may be completely original to that student) without the knowledge of or prior agreement of the teacher involved.
Note: should you start a blog, create a poster, newspaper, etc., you must attribute all photos.
You cannot use “google images” as your citation. You have to go to the original source.
Tips to Avoid Plagiarism
Don’t cut and paste and pretend it’s your work.
Don’t rewrite the passage in your own words and pretend it’s your work.
When you research, ensure your notes include the date, attribution, complete quote.
If you want to use the same work for more than one course, speak to your teacher beforehand.
