Chalk Talk: The Importance of Academic Honesty
The advent of the Internet brought with it a multitude of informational sources (albeit not always truthful). With so much free and readily available data, plagiarism has become an all-too-easy task for students from grade school to college. In fact, the most recent generation of students probably doesn’t understand the concept of plagiarism—the fact that information is not always free and its existence belongs to someone else. Teachers and parents have to be diligent about educating children regarding plagiarism, and there are some simple ways students can make sure their work remains honest. First, understand exactly what plagiarism is—claiming someone else’s work as your own or neglecting to quote statements of another person. Second, understand the importance of academic honesty and respect copy write laws. People work hard, and their thoughts, writing, and speaking is intellectual property. You wouldn’t dream of taking credit for inventing Velcro or paper clips, would you? Giving people credit for their work or paying for it is the honest thing to do.
