I was thinking that there are excellent reasons to teach our students about copyright laws. I'm sure most students have heard about copyright because of copying music. And, I know that most teachers discuss plargairism on papers. But, have we taught them the skill of writing a paper with their own ideas so they're not plagarizing? I had a student take the DRA assessment and copy, word for word, their summary. I'm thinking that there was a child that needed to be taught "HOW". It's not an easy thing. I think we need to give students more time in learning what to quote, what to say in their own words, and how to do both. That could be so many lessons! I realize part of the problem is squeezing that into the curriculum. However, I think it's an important idea to squeeze in!
