Reflection: Adjustments to Practice "Two houses, both alike...": Becoming Pros at Prologue Analysis and Book Jacket Work Time - Section 5: Application: Project Work Time


As I have been reading projects, I have noticed that a few students have made the error (I hope) of plagiarizing information from other sources. It is really important that students complete this project based on their understanding of the books they have chosen, so I really need a way to avoid the pitfalls of plagiarism. I would suggest using if your school uses it because it will deter students from copying from texts or not citing sources correctly. You will probably notice when students plagiarize because the language will be a bit too perfect, but it would be nice for students to be able to use the site to find their own plagiarism---before I do. Any instances of plagiarism will result in a zero for that panel.
