Module Descriptions

Module 1: Define

This module provides a definition of plagiarism and common knowledge. Through a series of activities, students will be able to identify if and why a passage has been plagiarized. Case studies provide an opportunity for students to decide if a character is guilty of plagiarism. 

Module 2: Prevent

This module illustrates a process by which students paraphrase in order to prevent plagiarism. Guided activities allow students to practice the process by recognizing if a passage has been plagiarized. 

Module 3: Cite

This module conveys the importance of citation to prevent plagiarism. Students will review examples of in-text and bibliographic citation in the MLA and APA styles and review parts of a citation. They will use resources to help them create citations in a specific style and practice creating in-text and bibliographic citations.
