Friday 5: On Plagiarism

A Fragile Trust: Plagiarism, Power and Jayson Blair at The New York Times – This documentary premiers on May 4, 2014 on PBS, including an exclusive interview with the journalist at the centre of the controversy. – If this website had existed back when I was teaching English, I would have recommended it to my students as a useful resource.

The Real Problem with Mark Driscoll’s ‘Citation Errors’ – okay, so it wasn’t plagiarism, it was the fault of the research assistant/ghost writer?

Why Pastors Should Plagiarise in Their Sermons – a catchy title for a post that makes a good point about drawing on the research and work of others.

6 Thoughts on Plagiarism, Creative Expression, and Sermon Writing – “Imitation is flattery, plagiarism is an insult.” Well said.

  1. Reblogged this on Ida’s Blog and commented: Helping students write is the key (and that means teaching what plagiarism is and how to avoid it!)

  2. Thanks Russell and Ida – when I taught college English, I didn’t have much trouble with plagiarism, but others who assigned more research-based essays found it more of an issue. It’s something for all students, preachers, bloggers, and writers of any kind to be aware of. I appreciate your link and re-blogging, Ida.

  3. Thanks for introducing me to Traci Smith’s website. I’ve bookmarked it and will go back to it. I appreciated her thoughts.
