Academic Integrity:
Academic honesty (i.e., doing your own work and presenting your own ideas while crediting others for theirs) is critically important and will be strictly enforced; academic dishonesty (e.g., plagiarism, other forms of cheating, etc.) is totally unacceptable. Please read and review Earl Babbie, “How to Avoid Plagiarism” at

There should not be any plagiarism on any assignments, whether small or large, draft or final. As a first step, when plagiarism is suspected or detected, I will stop reading the assignment and assign no credit; further steps will be taken afterwards. If you are ever unsure what plagiarism is or isn’t, it is your responsibility to investigate.
