Preventing Plagiarism: Tips and Techniques by Laura DeSena

Bring On Secondary Sources

  • Once the primary source paper is finished, the students can find a scholarly article that analyzes the same piece of work. They can then analyze it to look for the thesis and the evidence used to support it. They should take notes of how the scholar used secondary sources along with the boundaries between the introduction, body, and conclusion. Once this process is finished, it’s time to take their original work and incorporate secondary sources. This can take the form of a term paper. Ideally they will find scholars that support, at least in part, their thesis and those that take different or opposing views. Laura provides detail and examples for how this can be done.
