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:

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

2. Referral to assistant principal for disciplinary consequences; parent/guardian will be notified.

3. Loss of all credit for the assignment or test with no makeup permitted.

4. Upon second violation of 2nd degree cheating within the same course, the student may be dropped from the class.

5. Monday School (3 hours)

6. Suspension from school
