Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Diving Into The Best Story: An Introduction to Narratives - Section 5: Review


I think this lesson on "The Best Story" serves well as a way to introduce students to the idea of plagiarism.  From reading Eileen Spinelli's book, students understand that to make a story really your own and meaningful to you, you need to write it yourself.  But, it's also a nice segway into talk to students about how it's important that we respect the work that others do and not take others' ideas and claim them as "our own".
