Avoiding Plagiarism Tutorial

Avoiding Plagiarism Tutorial

What are we really talking about?  How does one prevent plagiarism - especially unintentional mistakes?  Are citations really important?  We have 3 modules to make sure you are all set to answer these questions.  A pre-test for each module will help you know if there is a bit more for you to learn on these topics, and if so, then each module takes about 20 minutes.

Module 1: Define

This module provides a definition of plagiarism and common knowledge. Through a series of activities, students will be able to identify if and why a passage has been plagiarized. Case studies provide an opportunity for students to decide if a character is guilty of plagiarism.

Module 2: Prevent

This module illustrates a process by which students paraphrase in order to prevent plagiarism. Guided activities allow students to practice the process by recognizing if a passage has been plagiarized.

Module 3: Cite

This module conveys the importance of citation to prevent plagiarism. Students will review examples of in-text and bibliographic citation in the MLA and APA styles and review parts of a citation. They will use resources to help them create citations in a specific style and practice creating in-text and bibliographic citations.
