This product is part of my Digital Literacy Bundle.
Teach your students about copyright, plagiarism and how to cite their sources.
What is included:
22 slide PowerPoint introduction
3 Review Worksheets
18 practice task cards (comes in a .pdf document and an editable PowerPoint file)
The PowerPoint introduction teaches students what copyright and plagiarism are and why it is important to give credit for using other’s work and ideas. It reviews the vocabulary terms citation, source, work cited and bibliography. There are two separate slides for the terms works cited and bibliography. This is because I have found that some schools teach one term and not the other. This way you can choose which slide to use. The last 7 slides are examples of how to create a citation for different kinds of sources (book, website, print encyclopedia, online encyclopedia, magazine, newspaper and online database). The text on these slides can be edited. Again, this is because not every school teaches the same format for citations. You can edit the text to whatever you need it to say. These 7 slides are the only slides that can be edited.
The task cards are to review the information that is in the PowerPoint. The questions ask students to identify parts of a citation, identify mistakes or missing information in a citation. There are also a few questions about the importance of citing your sources and why plagiarism is wrong. There is an answer key included.
The task cards can be used in a variety of ways. You can use them as a center activity, a partner activity, in small groups, as a scoot game, whole-class instruction, practice and review or for fast finishers. They can be used in a classroom or a library setting.
The worksheets can be used as a review or assessment to check the student’s understanding of the concepts.
