Note about plagiarism:
I will fail you if you plagiarize (not just the essay, but the class) and I will confer with my supervisor about any other institutional responses to your plagiarizing.
Please understand that quoting without citations is plagiarizing. For example paraphrasing Wikipedia, or spark notes, or any other reference page that explains the ideas of The New Jim Crow or any of the other sources or concepts or ideas that you use in your paper WITHOUT including an in-text citation will result in a plagiarism charge and an F. I am very familiar with what these web sources say about the material, and I can recognize when they are being used in people s work. Note that this is the NUMBER ONE FORM OF plagiarizing I ve encountered as a teacher, and it is fairly easy to recognize at this point. IF YOU USE THESE SOURCES YOU MUST INCLUDE IN TEXT CITATIONS. But also note that they do not meet the requirements for sources.
