Writing or Plagiarizing?
Broz, Nancy D.
This paper notes that, when teachers assign the writing of research reports without showing children how to write such reports, they may actually encourage children to plagiarize. It then outlines a method used to teach seventh graders how to write short "controlled reports." Working as a group, the students learn how to pose research questions, use sources of information, organize information, write outlines, and compose reports from the outlines. The goal is for students to get the feeling of collecting and controlling information and to have the satisfaction of writing a report in their own words. (GW)
