 Unit Two Whose is it, Anyway?

Copyright and Fair Use

How can you show respect for other people's work?

Students learn that although the Internet makes it very easy, copying the work of others and presenting it as one’s own is called plagiarism. They also learn about circumstances in which it is permissible to use the work of others. Students are first introduced to the feeling of having someone pretend to have written work they created. Then they judge whether or not different situations involving students and schoolwork are acceptable. Students are introduced to proper ways to cite people’s words and ideas from the Internet, including how to write a citation.
