Preventing Plagiarism: Tips and Techniques by Laura DeSena

Beyond English Class

  • Laura suspects that teachers in other subjects are even more likely to start with secondary sources. This need not be the case. In social studies primary sources are abundant and can even include interviews done by the student. In science it can be the observations made of an experiment or observations of natural phenomena. As in English class, students should being taking notes as they go and use them to form their original thesis. Once it’s time to bring in secondary sources in any field, beware that students may find material that is too complex for them to understand as they are written for the author’s peers and not students. If this happens they should just continue looking.
