Week 7 Assignment

I didn’t read the “complete either A or B” of the week 7 assignment and ended up doing both.  This is highly unusual for me to go above and beyond the call of duty so I thought I would post my plagiarism assignment (part B) since I thought it was a good one.


Plagiarism- Lesson


OUTCOME: Make an Impression on students regarding plagiarism and academic integrity.

  • 25 min: Partner Writes:
    • Teacher Prep: Cut out 1-2 sentences with specific stats, facts, or opinions on a specific subject – ex. Bieber vs. Swift – “Who’s more popular?” On the bottom of the sheet is the source information in APA format.
    • Students mingle with 3-6 other students to share their info sheet, making notes of the information that they would like to use for their own paragraph and copying the source information

Variation: Students could prep their own facts about a subject, searching online, taking the most relevant information, and citing the source with APA
