Rewriting is not plagiarism!

October 10th, 2010

Here's a rewrite on ... rewriting!

U-of-A students can now take a course on copying.  The University of Arizona says plagiarism has increased seven hundred percent since 1999.  The University says cut-and-paste has made it easy to copy other writer's words, but a new software program that detects that has worked as a deterrent.  Now student offenders can take a workshop to learn how to summarize, paraphrase and cite someone else's work.  The University expects enrollment to reach 100 students this fall.
