Plagiarism

Plagiarism a lie of the mind by Maurice Isserman was an article about how plagiarism affected her school and her thoughts on plagiarism. For me plagiarism was really acknowledge my freshman year in high school. The students in my English class were being caught copying and pasting other people work on the internet to do their essays. Just like Maurice I started paying more attention to plagiarism when one of our own got caught. Three students failed the essay because of plagiarism and after that incident my high school began teaching students what was plagiarism and how it was illegal and get you in trouble with the law. This is my second year in City Tech and this year teachers are acknowledging plagiarism more then the previous, i think it’s a good idea to explain what is it and how to avoid getting into any trouble.
