Module 8: 1st Scenario Explained

Borrowing some else’s words or ideas is plagiarism. Lauren is considering using someone else’s term paper! She is frustrated, unsure about her writing abilities and feels like she is running out of time, but she has other options. She can go to her professor and ask for some suggestions for getting started, or she can talk to a librarian about some resources to use. Even if she doesn’t get an A on this paper, she’s better off going her own work than risking an Academic Integrity violation.
