These resources can lead to some interesting discussions about the nature of plagiarism, especially the internet-fueled "cut-and-paste" variety. Students will be given examples of inappropriate paraphrasing, collaboratively practice paraphrasing, and then work independently on paraphrasing.

This was a great way for me to introduce the topic of plagiarism. The slide show is intended to be used slowly as a catalyst for discussion, and slides should not be shown in rapid succession. This PowerPoint is adapted from tutorials used at Indiana University (http://www.indiana.edu/~wts/pamphlets.shtml). Incorrect and correct paraphrasing is modeled, and there is opportunity for students to practice and share their paraphrasing skills. Every year, my students particularly resonate with slide #9.

This extensive packet is modified from a collection of tutorials from Indiana University (http://www.indiana.edu/~wts/pamphlets.shtml). It discussed "classic" plagiarism as well as the "cut-and-paste" variety. Paraphrasing is modeled, and there is an independent homework assignment to reinforce that skill. Finally, there is a self-evaluation and "homework" for parents, in which students engage in a discussion about the changing nature of plagiarism. This resource is part of the Avoiding Plagiarism collection.
