All work you submit for this class–whether on the course blog, Twitter, in email, or in class discussion–should be your own. By attending this university you have agreed to abide by the Penn Student Code of Conduct and Code of Academic Integrity.
Plagiarism is the representation of someone else’s ideas, quotations, or research as your own. It is a form of theft. Examples of plagiarism: buying a paper written by someone else, quoting or summarizing an author’s argument without correctly citing them, using ideas found on websites for your assignments without correctly citing them, “borrowing” a classmate’s ideas for your own writing without attribution, and using your own papers for more than one class without explicit consent of all instructors (yes, you can plagiarize yourself).
PLAGIARISM IS NOT TOLERATED AND WILL CONSTITUTE AN IMMEDIATE FAILURE OF THE ASSIGNMENT AND POSSIBLY THE COURSE. Instances of plagiarism and/or cheating will be reported to the Office of Student Conduct at my discretion.
All assignments must enclose directly quoted material inside quotation marks, include in-text parenthetical citations for all material drawn from another source (including direct quotations, summaries, and paraphrased material), and include a works cited list. For a more detailed explanation of how to cite sources properly, see the Citing Sources page on the course website.
