Principles of Inquiry-Based Learning:

Authentic - With resources available on the internet and so easy to retrieve,
plagiarism is becoming a big problem. For the rest of their lives, the students
will be researching information and using resources in their classwork and
even when they get a job. Students need to learn when you use information
from books, magazines, and the internet, they need to cite their work.
Deep Understanding - Through the use of technology, the students will gain a
deeper understanding of plagairism because they will be able to learn about
different examples of plagairism through videos. They will, also, be able to
learn about some of the consequences of plagairism through videos.

Student Success - Student success will be measured by orally explaining why

Tell the students we will be learning about plagiarism and what it means.
The students will watch the videos on plagiarism using the web address for
the curated resources at "Bag the Web." The address is written on the

and type a question they have or a fact that is interesting or needs to be
clarified on their tablets.
Ask if there were any questions that needs to be answered or clarified or

paragraph and why?" The students' will write yes or no on their answer
boards and then I will ask them to show me their answer and then ask why
they chose that answer.
