Source: ?Plagiarism is No Big Moral Deal? by Stanley Fish
Due Date: Friday, Jan. 20
In a brief paragraph (150-250 words), restate in your own words the content of Stanley Fish?s ?Plagiarism? column (handout) focusing on the Fish?s central claim and the main points that support it. In addition to the main argument and its support, I also want you to identify the main way in which the argument is expressed ? how is argued effectively and how that helps the central claim. The language of a summary should be independent of the original and contain few, if any, quotations. The summary must be accurate and complete, communicating your understanding of the essay as a whole and its purpose.
? Read the essay carefully. Annotate it, identifying the main claim and it?s support points.
? Then reread the essay. Outline to identify the author?s main claim and the key ideas that support that claim.
? Paraphrase: substitute your own words for the original. Using transitions, attributive tags, and strong verbs (?The author claims??), arrange your sentences so they read logically and smoothly.
? Check the draft of your summary against the original for accuracy and completeness.
Criteria for Evaluation:
