Cut and Paste 101: Plagiarism and the Net

Educational Leadership Volume 57, Number 4, ISSN 0013-1784


There are three types of Internet cheaters: unintentional, sneaky, and lazy. Plagiarism is not new, but Internet cheat sites allowing users to cut and paste papers easily from untraceable sources are widespread. Teachers should be aware of cheat sites, demand rewrites, assign unique topics, and teach source documentation. (MLH)
