If you are in need of a slide showing examples of plagiarism, the one at right might work for you. My suggestion is to show the image in class and ask students to choose the plagiarist they’d like to hear more about as a way to teach about plagiarism and proper attribution. Links to full details on all 10 examples are below. See also my “Preventing plagiarism” page if you want further thoughts on the topic.
- H.G. Wells (The Outline of History)
- T.S. Eliot (The Waste Land)
- Martin Luther King (PhD dissertation, speeches)
- Alex Haley (Roots)
- Doris Kearns Goodwin (The Fitzgeralds and the Kennedys)
- Joe Biden (speeches, law school paper)
- Michael Bolton (Love is a Wonderful Thing)
- Stephen Ambrose (The Wild Blue)
- Jane Goodall (Seeds of Hope)
- The Consortium for Plant Biotechnology Research (Symposium Poster Rules and Guidelines)
In case you found this site while searching for advice on poster presentations, here are two that I helped Daisy Bicking make for a The Laminitis Conference in Florida. Both were crafted to be light on text and to show off her great photographs.
And if you’ve found this site because you have a lame horse, you can contact Daisy for details at firstname.lastname@example.org. She’s based in West Chester, Pennsylvania (near me), but makes road trips with her crew. She also gives seminars on how to do the above, and much more. You can also follow her farm on facebook. Tell her I sent you.
Please also see my Designing conference posters page for tips and downloadable templates in Powerpoint and OpenOffice.
