Plagiarism happens when someone passes off the work of another person as their own, does not cite resources, or cites them improperly. By teachers modelling and instilling work habits involving acknowledging authorship, critical thinking, notemaking, and making bibliographies, students should come to believe that plagiarism is not only unnecessary, but that it is a non-acceptable behaviour.

Purposes Specific Learning Outcomes LICT Descriptors How To Do Related Information

Show students how to take notes. Check the notes periodically. Ensure they write the source of the notes with each note so that if they use that note as a citation, they will be able to attribute ownership properly. Show students how to do a proper citation and encourage them to use citations in their work, in a reasonable way. Note Making Show students how to write a bibliography. Check their working bibliography on an ongoing basis. Bibliography Assign subjects that make it difficult to plagiarize, requiring the students to draw conclusions based on what has been discussed in class, or related to a subject for which they must draw on their own personal experience.
