Library Services Application

Interested in taking Library Services next year?

It's an AWESOME class that looks GREAT on your transcript! (Way better than TA!). There is no homework and you get to work with books! 

 

Applications can be found HERE and in the Library. They are due by the end of the day Monday, March 6th. 

 

Check out what current Library Services students have to say about this class:

"I love the feeling of empowerment I receive when I finish covering a book or when I see the displays being admired by others. I love that I can come into this class and feel at peace. It's the period of the day I'm by myself, which allows me to clear my mind from all the stress and drama that is high school.”

 

“If you're considering taking Library Services, stop considering. TAKE IT. But be humble, really allow yourself to learn something new. Try and assimilate yourself into the culture that is Library Land and allow yourself to see things from new lenses. Even better, give yourself an opportunity to meet new people with weird quirks, unique personalities and get to know people you would never consider even talking to. The library has a place for everyone. There's a corner for everyone.”

 

“This class is bomb. It's one of the opportunities in high school that I could not be any more grateful to have taken. You will learn a lot and you will learn it fast. Don't miss out on this chance to immerse yourself in your school."

Plagiarism- What you need to know

Plagiarism is a serious issue since it's basically theft. You cannot "borrow" or steal people’s ideas without giving proper credit. It does not matter if you accidentally plagiarize, or if you do it intentionally. If you don’t give credit where credit is due, you have plagiarized. End of story. You MUST cite sources within the body of your paper AND in your Works Cited. 

This link will take you to a quick video tutorial about the different types of plagiarism: http://www.plagiarism.org/resources/webcasts

What happens if I am caught plagiarizing? School and district policy states:

ACADEMIC HONESTY POLICY

Honest behavior is an expectation at DVHS. The purpose of the policy is to create and maintain an ethical academic atmosphere in which strong behavioral consequences will be enforced. Teachers also address cheating and plagiarism in their course policies. Counselors will be notified of the incident and it may be disclosed on a student’s college application. Staff will access Turnitin.com to review plagiarism information taken from websites.

• Copying from another student

• Unauthorized collaboration on assignment (i.e. any assignment on which students collaborate must cite all students as contributors in the heading area of the assignment)

• Using unauthorized materials/resources (spark/cliff notes, cell phones, calculators, etc.)

• Submitting an essay written in whole or in part by someone else as one’s own

• Self-Plagiarism. Which is using your own work in its entirety or portions of a previously written text when creating new work. (Regardless of class/course or date created originally.)

• Preparing an essay or assignment for submission by another student

• Copying an assignment or essay or allowing one’s assignment or essay to be copied by someone else

• Using direct quotations, large sections or paraphrased material without acknowledgement

• Buying or selling essays or assignments

• Submitting whole or part of computer-generated documents or materials with or without minor modifications as one’s own

• If a student believes s/he has inadvertently accessed and/or benefitted from test or assignment materials, not distributed by the teacher of record, s/he must disclose this to a teacher or school official immediately

Consequences for Academic Dishonesty will include appropriate disciplinary measures consistent with Board policy and the California Education Code. One or more of the following consequences may occur. Disciplinary consequences will be cumulative for only the current school year per class and will be noted in students discipline file.

Examples include, but are not limited to:

1. Parent /Guardian contacted by teacher14
