Plagiarism Workshop

This Plagiarism Workshop lesson plan also includes:

What do George Harrison, Vanilla Ice, and Steven Ambrose all have in common? The Warner Brothers’ films Batman Forever and The Devil’s Advocate? All are guilty of plagiarism. And if you are considering a research project and want to impress on your writers the importance of citing sources, then this resource is a must. By introducing the topic with examples from the visual and performing arts, viewers are immediately engaged and sympathetic to the artist’s point of view. The richly detailed packet, containing all the materials needed and links to additional resources, deserves an honored place in your curriculum database.
