1. Using search terms “YouTube plagiarism” and “YouTube paraphrasing” locate and view a video for each. Based on your research write a one paragraph summary for each video, focusing on key themes covered and how they relate to assignments (e.g. discussion postings, reports) this semester in our class. Include a link to the video at the end of the paragraph. You should cover two separate videos, one for plagiarism and one for paraphrasing.
2. Review the UMUC policy on academic dishonesty issues (if not viewed previously) http://www.umuc.edu/administration/policies-and-reporting/policies/academic-affairs/dishonesty-plagiarism.cfm
3. Describe in a one paragraph how a student in this course can violate this policy, based upon assignments (e.g., discussion postings, reports, quizzes, exams, and all other submissions) this semester in this class
4. Describe in a one paragraph summary how you will comply with the policy, based upon the assignments (e.g., discussion postings, reports, quizzes, exams, and all other submissions) this semester in this class
NOTE: your 4 paragraph report should be unique to this course. Please do not refer to any other written documents or materials other than the items specified above.
You may include brief comments on similar experiences from other classes at UMUC if you had a class where a different assignment related to academic dishonesty was used but please be certain to write 4 paragraphs to complete each of the 4 goals above.
NOTE: Your report must be specific to this class, and not a copy of a report you created previously. Use examples of activities in this accounting course in your report and use the name and section number of this course:
Similar to all reports and submissions in our course, use single spacing with double spacing between paragraphs. Write in your own words except for specific names of resources.
