What is plagiarism and how to avoid it? Two questions every student should be able to answer clearly and decidedly.  To this end, I compiled this collection of educational video tutorials that you can use with your students in class to help them learn about plagiarism and understand the different ways  to avoid committing it including how to correctly paraphrase others' ideas.

You can use these videos as prompts for whole class discussion about the topic of plagiarism. Select a video, project it to the entire class to watch and use one of these formative assessment tools to check for understanding.
