Miss Ale I liked allot that page and when I was reading It said that I had to choose one of the people and I wanted to ask you why it appeared all people that looked like nerds? That page did you take it from some one and if you did what you have to do so that you are not taking the others idea?

Miss Ale:
This was a very good site and a really good way on how to learn to stop plagiarism. It was also very long.
(Quoted from: Manu Teubal)

Hi miss Ale:
You said us that plagiarism was to take an idea and say that was yours changing three words or less and copy paste it saing that it was yours. Theas means not to think and that you can´t think because the thing of paraphrasing is to do it in your own words and to put the resorce that you taked the idea. Plagiarism is something that can be caused with a error don´t knowing that you cant say that a idea is yours when it is of other person. And something that dosent have to do with language: Do you now when they give us the results of the voting for the friends on next year?

HI miss ale. I think that stoping plagiarism would be a great thing beacause it is very important for people to work and dont steal nor present others people works nor expand them as a market use or tool.

See you tomorrow.

Dear Miss Ale,
I liked the page a lot! I think that it is very interesting and helpful. I was very interested in paraphrasing today when we talked about it in class. I didn't know that you could get expelled from your university if you copied something and didn't put quotation marks! Since we are kids and we do not write with that complicated words, it is harder for us to do that because people can see that we didn't write something like that. On the questions in the site that you gave us, I think that I only got about one or two wrong.I also really liked the quote that was on the site: "You Quote It, You Note It!". I think that it is very important that you are aware of these instructions especially if you are going to have to write a long or even a short text for anybody because if I were to write something and I were to put it on a site that lots of people go to to look for information like "Wikipedia" then I would not like it if people were using what I wrote. It would be okay if they were to paraphrase it or write it in quotation marks and then writing where they got it from because then it would still be considered my work. I think that the site that you gave us was a great site for anyone to learn about Plagiarism because it tells you exactly what to do and what not to do. I also liked the part where it was like a game and you had to answer the questions or think about it. You could also choose which character you wanted to be so if you had to write something like a long paper, then you could choose which character was most like you and what you had to do so that that could help you write the paper and not anything wrong about plagiarism. Well, I think that this is one of my longest comments ever like Franco's two comments that he wrote. I cannot tell if this one is longer or shorter than his because it is in a little box where I have to scroll up and down so I don't know how long it is but I am very proud of it.
I wonder how the quiz on Rosa Parks tomorrow. I like the book a lot and I think that her life is very interesting. I love the way how she stood up for the black people and how she set her goal. That was very brave of her because she could get arrested and something bad could happen to her since everybody was so strict with the black people. I felt bad for all of the black people because they are just like the same as us except for a different color. I think that we are all equal whether we are black or white. I have learned a lot from the book and I hope that we can read more books like that. I also think that it would be interesting to read a book like that about Martin L. King. I think that he was similar to Rosa Parks because they worked together in their plan and he was also against discrimination on the black people. I think that I read a book on him a long time ago when I was in the United States at my old school but I do not remember a lot. Well, my comment has gotten very long. I think that in total there are about 633 words because I copied and pasted it in a word document to see exactly how many there were.
I will see you tomorrow!
Bye!

Luca M said...

Hi Miss Ale,
I liked alot this page because it explained you in a more detailed way how to stop plagiarism. I thing that shook me was that you could be fired from university. First I didn't understand how to do it then I found out that I need to answer the things that where in red.
See you tomorrow

Tomas.G said...

Hi Miss Ale,
I did it and it was long. I got a better idea of was plagiarism is. I did a home work in Ciencias Naturales and got information from google in a web page and i printed them. Then i made like a summary of it and sometimes i took some important parts. Anyway i wrote the source and everything was okay. I really liked this tutorial. I remember a friend of a friend that had to do a report on a city and copy pasted a page in google. The teacher found out and he failed the class. After that experience he never did plagiarism again. Poor him he did not know why he failed the class. Now he tells people his story and they learn to never do it like his friend that told it to me later on. There are many different punishment for doing plagiarism, depends were you work and how bad you copied that persons work or ideas. When you put things in the site that you told us in class, i understand more than what i knew. Going back to the tutorial, it made my brain work and also if i got one wrong i would reflexion and learn what i did wrong and what was the write answer. I am going to pass this on to other people who may not know about plagiarism, and then those people would pass it on to other people and so on. I hope that they understand and do it, many people forget to put the source. Like Justina said that we should paraphrase. What i do is read the text and then i put what i understood from the text, i i did not understand anything......well i do like Justina, paraphrase.I agree with every comment that is posted. I can't say them all because there are to many.
Thank you for putting this !!!
See you tomorow!!!!

Hi Miss Ale,
Wow! It was a great video(page) Before when I was small sometimes when I had to work I did copy paste but before like in second, third grade I did that but never thought of it as a bad thing but now I know I have to paraphrase and put the source when I search for information!
See you tomorrow!

Hi Miss Ale,

I liked the tutorial about plagiarism. I learned a lot about the dangers of plaigarisim as failing ontests, failing a subject or even expelling you from school. When I was a child I never thought that plagiarism was bad. In my opinion, we should write a piece of work about quouting or paraphrasing. This is something I have to improve.

You said us that plagiarism was to take an idea and say that was yours changing three words or less and copy paste it saing that it was yours. Theas means not to think and that you can´t think because the thing of paraphrasing is to do it in your own words and to put the resorce that you taked the idea. Plagiarism is something that can be caused with a error don´t knowing that you cant say that a idea is yours when it is of other person. And something that dosent have to do with language: Do you now when they give us the results of the voting for the friends on next year?

Well, LOL! This is So WRONG as I committed plagiarism because I cut and pastedt Martinas's comment!

But if I write...

"I liked allot that page and when I was reading It said that I had to choose one of the people and I wanted to ask you why it appeared all people that looked like nerds? That page did you take it from some one and if you did what you have to do so that you are not taking the others idea?" (Tomás Sacerdote)

I would be just quotating Tomás's comment and that would be ok as long as I mention the source and use inverted commas to show those are not my words!

I think I have learned a lot, haven't I?
Bye.

miss ale
I love when you put things like this: they teach and also are very fun and entertaining. i hope you keep on putting games, videos and things like this in the blog.

Benjamin.p said...

Miss Ale:
You said us that plagiarism was to take an idea from somebody and say that it was yours. Plagiarism is very wrong becasue you are steeling sombodies idea and he did all the efort to do the work and you only copy paste and say you did it.

See you tomorrow

Lou I said...

Hi Miss Ale,
I liked a lot this site and it was fun because I learnt what plagiarism is. I REALLY THINK THAT PLAGIARISM IS NOT GOOD!

Teo V said...

Miss Ale
I like very much this post because there are people that do it all the time and that is a way of NOT learning, you don't learn so then when it is time to get a job you know nothing and you get fired. Also is cheating, instead if you paraphrase something is because you are understanding it! Pharaphrase is when you read a text and then you wright somewhere else what you understood.
See you tomorrow

Miranda C said...

Ariana G. said...

Hi Miss Ale,
I liked doing this type of game. At first we had to choose a person that we wanted to be through out the game and i chose the girl which was the last one. On the side it told us what we had to do to stop plagiarism and then we had to choose a correct answer. It was a little long so it took some time and I still couldnt finish it all. I will play again and finish it next time.
See you on Tuesday!!!

Clara G said...

Hi Miss Ale
This is a great site and I think that this site is very helpful and intresting.This site tells us what we had to do to stop plagiaris.I think that pharaphrasing is a big deal because in the site it said that you could get dismissed from the uneveristy.I have played the game,it was very good.But I think that the game was too long.I really like when you put sites like this ones because you can learn new things.
See you tommorow!

Lucas N said...

Miss Ale
I think that this page was very useful so that we get used to paraphrase and not copy paste. It is a very good tool to get used to parphrasing.

santino u said...

Miss Ale: I think plegarizing is bad maybe there is a piece of work you are allowed to plegarice but I still think it is not right because you are using something from others as yours.

See you on monday

GianfrancoE said...

Miss Ale i think this is a very useful page to learn how to stop plagiarism.(as manu T said). I think it is very important to learn what is plagiarism and to know how to stop it.

Rocío PR said...

Hi Miss Ale,
You told us that plagiarism is to copy and paste or take ideas of other ones and don't give them credits. While I did the exercise, I thought of that and I had all correct. Plagarism is something that it have to be stoped. If you put in the shoes of the other one; How do you will feel if they took an idea that is yours. That is one of the reasons to stop plagiarism .

Bianca F said...

Hi Miss Ale
Plagiarism is a very bad thing to do, and according to the imformation I read all along the classes I think all the school should know about plagiarism. By knowing this we could prevent some things. I think it is very important!!

justina b said...

Hello Miss Ale
Nobody should make plagarism because its not allowed and its unfair. We should all pharafrase since thats the solution... But i have to admit that its not very easy now in the project of heroes we got to parhafrase about different topics of different heroes and it seems to be very difficult to me. But im realy enjpying the project.
see you tomorrow
