8.05 Quote the Experts When something can be read without effort, great effort has gone into its writing. ~Enrique Jardiel Poncela Be a good Christian citizen and stop random acts of plagiarism! Plagiarism is the clear theft of another person's ideas. Ephesians 4:28 reminds us that we must not steal. Whether it is a material or someone’s words we must make a direct decision not to plagiarize. If other's thoughts aren't respected, what is? With the way information can be quickly spread over the Internet, there is more sensitivity to people's mental capital than ever before. You can avoid plagiarizing by simply documenting ideas that are not yours. To document means to keep a record of the resources used. In your I-search, you've gathered ideas from many people . For the next section of your paper, you're going to share these ideas. First, though, you need to understand internal documentation. Documentation is not the most exciting concept to study in the world . However, it is a vital writing skill which will prove important in future courses and at the college level. So, I'll make you a deal: If you read carefully and take great notes on the information in this lesson, you will do very well on the assessment for this lesson. In addition, you will help yourself on your I-search paper, as you are evaluated on your documentation technique in your final draft.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
