Top Sites for Understanding What Plagiarism Is



Teaching Students About Plagiarism



Common Sense Education: Rights, Remixes, and Respect (9-12)


"What should you consider when you use other people's creative work?

Students reflect on the differences between taking inspiration from the creative work of others and appropriating that work without permission. Students review their knowledge of copyright and fair use, and examine a case study involving the appropriation of music by a popular band. Students then form groups in which they role-play different stakeholders in the music industry, and then debate the ethical and legal issues involved in using other people‚Äôs creative work in practices such as remixes and sampling."
