3rd Graders in Connecticut Learn About Plagiarism
Students were asked
how they would show
that an idea belonged to them
"You should keep it somewhere safe...
like in a desk drawer in your room." -Brianna
"You should say it outloud so people know it's yours." -Filip
"Put your name on it
and maybe the date
like in art." -Grace
Students were told that plagiarism is when you copy someone else's work without giving them credit
What if someone took your work and put their name on it?
"You can't do that!"-Lauren
"I'd be so mad!"-Alex
Students learned that plagiarism is cheating and could get you in serious trouble
Cite your sources!
If you want to borrow someone's idea
You need to give them credit!
Students used Glogster to complete biography research projects on a famous person of their choice
Then they showed off their citation skills by completing a works cited for their projects.
Then we blogged about what we learned about plagiarism!
"Plagiarism is when you copy someone else's work and say it's yours."-Cooper
"Plagiarism is wrong because it's stealing." -Joseph
"If you want to borrow someone else's work...
...you have to make a works cited."-Cole
