Topic: Plagiarism

10-second review: The only way to defeat plagiarism is to involve students in writing or projects about which they truly care.

Title: “Prompt Attention: What I Learned from the Plagiarists.” Barry Gilmore. English Journal (November 2008), 102-104. A publication of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).

Summary/Quote: “The ultimate goal should not be to create a prompt that produces original writing but to create an environment that leads students to devise prompts and arguments of their own.”

Summary: Example: Ask students to brainstorm a list of possible topics on Hamlet.
