There are many instances of plagiarism that are purposeful and clearly a form of cheating. However, failing to carefully cite other people's ideas and language in the body of your writing can also be considered plagiarism. It is important to learn to skillfully give credit to your sources in the body of your writing. These are the three main ways other people's ideas can be incorporated in your writing and given credit with an in-text citation or a footnote.
When you use someone else's language word for word, you indicate this in a quotation. You must attribute the quote to the original source.
Summarizing is putting the main ideas of a source in your own words. Summarized ideas must also be attributed to the original source.
Putting a passage from a source into your own words is paraphrasing. This also must be attributed to the original source.
