Reflection Assignments

Discuss plagiarism and your newly acquired knowledge or understanding of giving credit where credit is due (The Essential Guide, pp. 58-65; Herzing University Policy on Academic Dishonesty, Course Information) When it comes to plagiarism and giving credit where credit is due; what I believe what this is about is giving who is reading your work that you have done the research and that you understand what you are reading. When it comes to citing you are putting your own words out there on what you are reading. It is not taking exactly what you are reading but that you are putting your own words and understanding. When citing you are giving where you got the information so that the reader if need be could go back and read it themselves. Also you want to give evidence that you are doing your own work and not just copying word for word. When it comes to avoiding plagiarism make sure you don’t use others work also you need to just be honest. Nothing is really better than doing your own work, cause who you are really benefiting by copying somebody else’s work. There really is nothing better than getting your own work accomplished. Just make sure that you are using your own ideas and if you ever have to change someone else’s ideas then you just make sure that you are putting down a site that you know are getting the ideas from somewhere else’s. It just comes to having integrity in your writing just make sure you know the certain boundaries when it comes to writing. Make sure that you cite everything that you use also make sure you aren’t just copying somebody else’s work or somebody else’s ideas. Always make sure that you just stay true to yourself, and your writings.
