Question: How do college students view plagiarism?
Answer: “Students tended to take plagiarism seriously, construing it in terms of fairness to other writers, responsibility of student independent work, and respect for ownership rights.” BM Kroll. 1988. P. 436.
Comment: As part of the opening presentation, you might ask students how they feel about plagiarism. It will be interesting to see if they concur with this researcher’s findings. More than likely, some will ask you to define it. That will get the discussion started. RayS.
