Summary of “Academic Integrity” by Arden Miller and Adena D. Young-Jones Which one do you believe cheats more in schools, an online course or a face to face course? Arden Miller and Adena Young-Jones did an article over which one tended to be worse when they found results that were kind of shocking.

Susan Blum's article, "Academic Integrity and Student Plagiarism: A Question of Education, Not Ethics" focuses on the reasons behind students' lack of academic integrity. First, Blum believes institutions treat plagiarism as a crime or as an immoral act but neither method is effective. The author thinks students place their personal priorities over honor codes and don't take rules concerning plagiarism seriously (Blum). This means students would rather help their friends cheat than do the right thing. Second, Blum thinks teachers struggle to teach the complex skills needed for citation.
Discussion: I think the hardest plagiarism to avoid is paraphrasing. The reason I think paraphrasing is the hardest is because sometimes its hard to paraphrase someone's else's work without saying just about everything that they stated without getting your point across to your professor. In the academic integrity video I failed the paraphrasing section and I believe I failed that section because I paraphrased the paragraph wrong, by saying wrong I mean I don't think I put my words together well enough stating what the author said properly. By me not paraphrasing it properly I failed , so that let me know that when writing papers this term I need to work on my paraphrasing a lot.
