  1. This is a really important lesson. Learning to use quotations and cite your work can prevent a huge problem!


  2. Indeed, Scarlet! Glad you’re here with me. 🙂


  3. Love this post! Very timely for me as I am teaching research to my 9th graders now. I have always struggled to get students to understand the concept of plagiarism. This makes it easier. Thanks, Laura!!


  4. So glad you found the video series, Frances! Hope it helps lighten your prep load. 🙂
