Useful Websites for School
Plagiarism is a good way to blow any project. It means using someone else's thoughts, words, work or ideas and passing them off as your own. For example, if you copy and paste an article from a website into your essay without saying where you got it, that's plagiarism. Plagiarism is cheating and even like stealing.
Some of the consequences of plagiarism are receiving a zero on your work, suspension or even expulsion. Plagiarism can be avoided by acknowledging that other person in a reference, works cited, or bibliography. To learn how to avoid plagiarism, check out the links below.

There are lots of reasons to include a bibliography with your work! The main reason is to avoid plagiarism. Another reason is to give your work creditability; you sound like you know what you're talking about and people will believe in your work if you back up your facts. And if your work really inspires someone, they might want to learn more about what you were writing about. By including a bibliography, you give that person a place to start.
