PLAGIARISM • Plagiarism is passing off someone else’s ideas as your own. Avoiding plagiarism is a key component of academic integrity. • Teachers take plagiarism very seriously—and many might not care if it was done unintentionally. • The following are some tips for identifying and avoiding plagiarism. You should always cite your source if you use someone else’s ideas. This applies to quoting, paraphrasing, and summarizing.
QUOTING • Using someone’s exact words in something you’ve written. • Always put quotes in quotation marks and give credit to the author.
PARAPHRASIN G • Putting an idea or a passage from a source into your own words. • You don’t have to use quotation marks, but you must still attribute the source.
SUMMARIZING • Taking only the main ideas within a source and putting them into your own words. • Like a paraphrase, quotation marks are not required, but you must attribute the source.
• In a Word or handwritten document, keep a collection of the summaries, paraphrases, and direct quotes you collect as you read a source. • Be sure to put the source at the top of each group so you know where they came from. AVOIDING PLAGIARISM
• Academic integrity is your responsibility. When in doubt, talk to your teacher.
