It's the beginning of a new school year, and many of you are looking for plagiarism detection tools that are less costly than turnitin.com. You may find this program helpful though turnitin's peer review platform is worthwhile.
Just keep in mind that for high school and college students, rapport is critical to forming a cohesive learning community and an environment where a culture of metacognition and reciprocal teaching and learning may flourish (Palincsar & Brown, 1986; Brown and Campione, 1997; Darling-Hammond et al., 2008). Instead, tell students that these programs are not being used to catch them plagiarizing but to demonstrate when something is paraphrased properly so they are never accused of the act. This approach also lessens the chances that thievery will occur in the first place.
