Essay paper

Compose a reflective essay on plagiarism. This type of essay is primarily designed for you to express your own views and feelings on a topic rather than to prove a thesis. In particular this essay should document how your views on plagiarism have changed from before your taking this class to now when you have been shown several examples of plagiarism and the reasons for including proper citation.

This paper does not specifically require citing sources because its purpose is to be a reflection on the topic by you; nonetheless, you are encouraged to include any citation that you feel demonstrates your beliefs. Note that this will allow you to directly reference those ideas without inadvertently committing plagiarism. This paper does require adherence to all other APA formatting requirements.
