What Every Student Should Know About Avoiding Plagiarism teaches students to take plagiarism seriously, to understand its consequences, and to avoid it. This invaluable guide offers instruction and models for how to summerize, paraphrase, and to use quote sources. The most common types of plagiarism are discussed, from simple mistakes such as forgetting to use quotation marks when using someone else's exact words or failing to acknowledge another's thoughts and ideas, to wholesale fraudulence, such as purchasing student papers from onlilne sites and claiming them as one's own work. A brief guide to citing sources in both MLA and APA style guides is also included.
