Writing: Point Of View Paragraphs

L.I: what is a point of view

This week for writing, we've been learning about point of view. So with this being our theme, we had to make ourselves a 2 paragraph text, with a topic that you want to make an argument about. Each person in our group had to create one of these, and we had to read everyone's paragraphs in our groups, and either agree or disagree with his / her argument.

My Paragraphs.
My Problem: Plagiarism

School Plagiarism:
Plagiarism, it’s a big problem. Not only does it happen in school, but outside of school as well. Plagiarism is just a synonym for cheating, or for more detail, taking someone's work, and not giving credit to the rightful owner. In school plagiarism is one of the worst things you can do. You need to write a paragraph about World War 1? Some people would search up about it, find a website, and copy and paste the information into their work. It looks like you made a great example, until if you’re told to add more information to it while demonstrating to other people. That’s one case of plagiarism, there are many many ways to plagiarise people work.

Online Plagiarism:

This type of plagiarism can be worse in most cases. Online plagiarism is very risky, because of what the consequences can be. If you steal someone’s work without consent of allowance, you can possibly have to pay a fine. This can also happen with imposters, if they pretend to be someone, then they need to pretend that they own everything of the person they’re imposing. In this case things can get very bad very fast. The consequences can be things as bad as going to jail over stealing work, and identity. Besides stealing online work, or imposing other people, there are many more ways that you could plagiarise. Who knows, you may even have a piece of work that you don’t own, and you don’t even realise what you’ve done. What I want is for no one to plagiarise anyone, I hope you agree as well.

  1. Greetings Jack!
    Nice argument! I like how you talked about how people could cheat but once they're asked to add more information they'd be discovered. Did it take long to think of a topic? Was it easy to think of those examples? Also have you ever plagiarised?
    Great job!
