Before He Cheats
Three ways avoid plagiarism:
Use direct quotes, paraphrase, or summarize your information from your sources. See chart explaining the differences. See this PDF for examples of the differences: Plagiarism: What is it? by Indiana University's Writing Tutorial Services.
Paraphrasing vs. Summarizing
Another way to compare paraphrasing and summarizing:
If you watched CSI last night and you came to school telling your friends about what happened during the episode, you would be summarizing.
What would these two have in common? You would still need to creidt your source (the CSI episode) by including parenthetical documentation (intext citations) with a complete work cited page.
