Barry Gilmore is participating in a FREE on-line roundtable webinar "Plagiarism in the Digital Age: Voices from the Front Lines -- What's Happening in High Schools Now." To learn more visit www.plagiarism.org.

Plainly put, plagiarism isn't acceptable. But what's not so simple for students to understand is what exactly plagiarism is, how it happens, and how to avoid it. That's why Barry Gilmore's Plagiarism: A How-Not-To Guide for Students is a must-have for student writers.

In Plagiarism: A How-Not-To Guide for Students, Barry Gilmore follows up on his teacher's guide Plagiarism: Why It Happens How to Prevent It. Gilmore doesn't sugarcoat plagiarism, but he offers writers reasoned and reasonable solutions. His savvy handbook:

  • speaks directly to students in lively language about what plagiarism is and how it happens
  • presents case studies drawn from real-world events as well as student examples
  • never talks down and invites students to think and talk about plagiarism
  • outlines the consequences of plagiarism without resorting to fear or intimidation.
Gilmore provides all the dos and don'ts students need. With his book students will:
  • get explicit guidelines for MLA and APA citation
  • find out how to use search engines well and document their results appropriately
  • learn to properly summarize and paraphrase third-party material
  • understand what is common knowledge and what isn't.

Plagiarism: A How-Not-To Guide for Students goes well beyond plagiarism avoidance. It builds students' ethical awareness about what cheating is. And it leads them to understand why using their own words is important and, ultimately, more satisfying.

Give your students Plagiarism: A How-Not-To Guide for Students for every paper they will write-across the years, across the content areas. Or better yet, use it alongside Barry Gilmore's teacher's guide, Plagiarism: Why It Happens How to Prevent It. Because your greatest allies in preventing academic dishonesty are well-informed students.
