Standards For Students 2b Students engage in positive, safe, legal and ethical behavior when using technology, including social interactions online or when using networked devices. Positive behaviors Interactions that convey a portrait of the way you want to be perceived and healthy interactions with technology itself, for example, moderating the time online or gaming, ergonomic issues and balancing use of media with daily physical activity. Safe behaviors Interactions that keep you out of harm’s way, for example, knowing the identity of who you are interacting with; how much and what kind information you release online; protecting oneself from scams, phishing schemes and poor purchasing practices (e-commerce theft). Legal behaviors Interactions that are mindful of the law, for example, abiding by copyright and fair use, respecting network protections by not hacking them and not using another’s identity.
Avoiding Plagiarism Summary: There are few intellectual offenses more serious than plagiarism in academic and professional contexts. This resource offers advice on how to avoid plagiarism in your work. Contributors:Karl Stolley, Allen Brizee, Joshua M. PaizLast Edited: 2014-10-10 09:01:36 Research-based writing in American institutions, both educational and corporate, is filled with rules that writers, particularly beginners, aren't aware of or don't know how to follow. While some rhetorical traditions may not insist so heavily on documenting sources of words, ideas, images, sounds, etc., American academic rhetorical tradition does. (Purdue University students will want to make sure that they are familiar with Purdue's official academic dishonesty policy as well as any additional policies that their instructors have implemented.) Intellectual challenges in American academic writing There are some intellectual challenges that all students are faced with when writing.
Library Patch: Citing Sources with Kids As a librarian, one of my biggest challenges is getting our elementary kids to cite their sources. Writing out a whole annotation is next to impossible for those who are just beginning to get a handle on reading and writing. However, it is so important!! We as educators need to be sure that our new readers and writers respect other's works and have a good solid foundation in information literacy and attribution. I am here to say that bibliographic annotation doesn't need to be hard! I have developed a strategy for citing sources and creating a bibliography that both teachers and kids will find painless. I start off by actually creating a bibliography for the kids! Then kids have a note sheet. Want to know more ... click on the picture below! Happy Researching!

Plagiarism Scavenger Hunt Examples: I would be plagiarizing if I were to write an essay about the walrus and said: The walrus' other characteristic features are equally useful. As their favorite meals, particularly shellfish, are found near the dark ocean floor, walruses use their extremely sensitive whiskers, called mustacial vibrissae, as detection devices. Why is this plagiarism? #1 is an example of plagiarism because I took the sentences directly from this National Geographic Website. Remember, even though you learned from the walrus site and wrote sentences in your own words, the information still does not belong to you! How do I avoid plagiarism?

Musings from the Middle School: Summarizing, Paraphrasing, and Quoting This year, I decided to teach this skill over a few days at the beginning of the year. I've never taught it like this before. I usually wait until I move into nonfiction and argument writing and then I mention the difference in the three, but I never teach it as its own lesson. I was inspired by this post over at The Creative Apple. Wanting to have an interactive page for our ISNs, I turned the anchor chart into this interactive folding page! They looked like this in our notebooks: Which open and look like this: Next, I had the kids read some short articles (I used some old Time for Kids magazines) and answer some simple, "right there" questions using either a quote, summary, or paraphrase to support their thinking. I am hoping that teaching this strategy early on will pay off. Do you teach this skill as its own lesson? Happy Teaching!!
Learning Strategy 3: Summarizing Learning Strategy 3: Summarizing Robert Harris Version Date: February 27, 2014 What is a Summary? While a paraphrase (see Learning Strategy 2) changes a sentence or two into the about the same number of your own words, a summary condenses the source material into fewer words. A summary can condense a paragraph to a sentence, reduce ten pages to a paragraph, or even sum up a book in a few sentences--or even one. Therefore, you can see that a summary provides a lot of flexibility in the degree of condensation. Why Should You Summarize? Speaking generally, summarizing is valuable because it requires you to More specifically, summarizing--rewriting the information in your own, fewer words--is helpful for learning because it causes you to simplify the material, making understanding it easier focus on what is most important condense the information, omitting less important details and examples How to Summarize To summarize and make the result shorter than the original
Plagiarism What is Plagiarism and Why is it Important? In college courses, we are continually engaged with other people’s ideas: we read them in texts, hear them in lecture, discuss them in class, and incorporate them into our own writing. As a result, it is very important that we give credit where it is due. Plagiarism is using others’ ideas and words without clearly acknowledging the source of that information. How Can Students Avoid Plagiarism? To avoid plagiarism, you must give credit whenever you use another person’s idea, opinion, or theory; any facts, statistics, graphs, drawings—any pieces of information—that are not common knowledge; quotations of another person’s actual spoken or written words; or paraphrase of another person’s spoken or written words. These guidelines are taken from the Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct. How to Recognize Unacceptable and Acceptable Paraphrases Here’s an UNACCEPTABLE paraphrase that is plagiarism: What makes this passage plagiarism? 1. 2.
