Presentation Transcript
  • According to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, to "plagiarize" means
  • 1) to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own
  • 2) to use (another's production) without crediting the source
  • 3) to commit literary theft
  • 4) to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source
  • In other words, plagiarism is an act of fraud.
  • It involves both stealing someone else's work and lying about it afterward.

GJHS Student Handbook
  • Students are expected to do their own work.
  • Students who choose to cheat, plagiarize, or forge may:
    • 1. have to repeat work for partial or no credit
    • 2. receive a grade of zero
    • 3. receive a failing grade for the semester
believe it or not
Believe it or not…
  • Changing the words of an original source is not sufficient to prevent plagiarism. If you have retained the essential idea of an original source, and have not cited it, then no matter how drastically you may have altered its context or presentation, you have still plagiarized.
