How to Recognize Plagiarism?
Chris just found some good stuff on the Web for his science report about sharks. He highlights a paragraph that explains that most sharks grow to be only 3 to 4 feet (90–120 cm) long and can’t hurt people. Chris copies it and pastes it into his report. He changes the font so it matches the rest of the report and continues his research. Uh-oh. Chris just made a big mistake. Do you know what he did? He committed plagiarism. Plagiarism is when you use someone else’s words or ideas and pass them off as your own. It’s not allowed in school, college, or beyond, so it’s a good idea to learn the proper way to use resources, sach as websites, books, and magazines.
