Plagiarism is essentially stealing the words, ideas, or creative works of someone else. Plagiarism is not limited to students; many famous artists, journalists, and performers, were either accused or found to have submitted work/ideas that were not their own. View this website to read how New York Times journalist, Jayson Blair, plagiarized materials in his articles. Do you think Mr. Blair’s reputation can be restored?

How would you feel if someone took credit for your ideas or work? How can students avoid plagiarism? Review the Monroe College Academic Integrity Policy (in the syllabus and Start Here folder) What do you think of the consequences for students who plagiarize?
