Reviewer Comments:

This excellent resource includes two PPT presentations and a packet of tutorials about plagiarism. As an introduction to a discussion about plagiarism, the first PPT introduces, defines, models and practices appropriate and inappropriate paraphrasing. The resources are complete and thorough; they offer guided practice and independent work for the learner. The final packet includes a resource for the students to keep in their binders; a self-assessment rating system to see how the students rank regarding paraphrasing, using a bibliography and the internet; and an acknowledgement for the parent to sign.
