Principles of Inquiry-Based Learning


 2. Deep Understanding
 4. Appropriate Use of Technology
 5. Student Success
 7. Performances of Understanding
 8. Ethical Citizenship

Lesson duration
1 class – 90 minutes

Essential Question
 What is plagiarism?
 What are copyrights?
 How do I use the information that I retrieve from the Internet in ethical ways?

Objectives
Students will:
 Go through the resources of a Thinglink page to understand the concepts of
plagiarism and copyright.
 Create a visual display of these concepts
 Write a small definition of the concept of Plagiarism

Lesson plan
1. Students will be given a link to a Thinglink page about plagiarism and copyrights
https://www.thinglink.com/scene/936812145251713027. They need to go through
all the resources and complete one small quiz at the end.
2. Encourage students to take notes as they go through the resources because they will
use their notes to create a “word cloud” of these concepts with the main words and
ideas. For that visual display they will use Tagul.
3. All students have a classroom page at Weebly that they have created, so they will
post their visual display in their page under the tab “Plagiarism.”

Assessment
This informal assessment is based on the visual display that the students will create.
Because this is a personal expression the teacher will only evaluate this project for
completion. It is the student’s responsibility to learn the material because in lesson 3, they
will have to cite all the sources that they used.

Material
 Classroom set of Chromebooks (one per student)
 Notebook for notes
 URL link to Thinglink
 URL to Tagul (word cloud program)
