Most of the aspects concerned with plagiariasm are explained here and the video could easily be used as a homework or in class, for students who are new to this concept to learn about it or comment on or raise questions.

UPDATE: there have been many requests to buy the print – thank you! We’ll be looking into it this week – so hopefully by the end of the week (that being Friday March 25), we should have something available. Thanks again for all your support and positive attitude, it’s so wonderful to see so many of you enthusiastic about giving credit where credit is due. x

Yes I think giving credit to other people's material we use is the right thing to do. Thanks for posting this.

Lots of steps to go through before using that copyrighted material. Maybe if the students had to look at this each time, they would just take your word for it and use Creative Commons licensed images to begin with!

Those are the four main styles used when writing professionally or academically. Students will need to use one of these standard styles, so it?s important
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Well researched article on a complex topic.  Think of this as a jumping off point for resources on the major citation styles used in research.

Yes - our high school students will need to learn these before they get to college...

Oh, that our students could deal with quotations and citations with this kind of insight.

Very funny!

Jef Mallett is constantly brightening my mornings with his comicstrip "Frazz."

As far as I'm concerned, there's nothing more that needs to be said about citations!
