A Magical Guide to Avoiding Plagiarism is an infographic guide created by Kate Hart. The guide was published back in June, but I just learned about it yesterday through one of Jenny Luca’s Tweets. A Magical Guide to Avoiding Plagiarism uses a Harry Potter theme to succinctly explain to students when and why they need to properly cite the sources of their information. I’ve embedded the infographic below, but I encourage you to visit Kate Hart’s blog post about it as she goes into more depth on the topic of plagiarism.
Applications for Education
A Magical Guide to Avoiding Plagiarism could be a great graphic to print and post in your school’s library and or in your classroom. While the infographic doesn’t go into the details of how to cite sources, it does provide students with good reminders of when they need to cite the sources of their information.
