Chalk Talk: Avoiding Plagiarism
When some people sit down to write, whether it be a letter, shopping list, or essay, they can have a tendency to freeze up. At these times, it might seem easy to “borrow” information from another source. However, it is important that any time we write, we avoid plagiarism, or taking credit for something someone else has written. By following the simple steps below, you can decrease your chances of accidentally plagiarizing. Always cite your sources. If you use information that is not “common knowledge,” or information that a common person would know, it probably needs to be cited. If you found the information from a source, it definitely needs to be cited. Never cut and paste. It is easy to “google” information, and then copy and paste it into a document. Unfortunately, this is an example of plagiarism, and it should be avoided. Summarize or paraphrase information. You can use information from another source, as long as you either put quotation marks around it, or summarize or paraphrase the information.
