In a five-paragraph essay, talk to me about plagiarism.
What is it? Why is it wrong? Your five paragraphs should be formatted as follows:
1. Introduction - introduce what you are talking about, and summarize your three points;
2. First reason why plagiarism is wrong, plus justification and support;
3. Second reason why plagiarism is wrong, plus justification;
4. Third reason why plagiarism is wrong, plus justification; and
5. Conclusion paragraph.
Remember to cite any references.
The purpose of this assignment is to ensure that you all thoroughly understand the severity of plagiarism.
It is theft. It is illegal. It will result in serious consequences.
Let's learn not to do it now so that we don't get punished later.
