    Plagiarism
    (The topic was once discussed on 20th January 2016)
     

    How do you study Vietnamese Literature Writing at school?
    Do you write creatively using your own words and express your own thought? Or do you use reference books, or sample writings as the “model”, then try to imitate the structures, the vocabulary, the expressions or the ideas of such writings?
    At schools in Vietnam, many students are given high scores if they have their works written in the same way as in reference books or sample writing. Therefore, it comes as no surprise if students copy sentences, paragraphs, or even the whole writing into their own writing without feeling guilty.
    Many students argue that “I did not open the book to copy the information during the test; I learnt it by heart, and only cited the sentences and paragraphs that I loved. It is not wrong”.
    What they are actually doing is called “Plagiarism”. Oxford Dictionary defines plagiarism as “to copy another person’s ideas, words or work and pretend that they are your own.”
    In the world, plagiarism is seriously judged. Plagiarism by students, professors, or researchers is considered academic dishonesty or academic fraud. In journalism, plagiarism is considered a breach of journalistic ethics, and reporters caught plagiarizing typically face disciplinary measures ranging from suspension to termination of employment. Recently, German’s defense minister was fired as she was accused of plagiarism in her Doctorate Thesis: she used many sentences, and paragraphs from other documents without citing the original sources.
     
    Questions to ponder:
    1. What is plagiarism?
    2. To what extend does plagiarism affect our daily life?
    3. How seriously should we judge plagiarism?
    4. How does the fact that school children are not giving appropriate guidance about plagiarism affect their behaviors and future work?
    5. How should we educate people in general and children in particular about plagiarism?
