Hi there! I’m really making progress on my research project about Harriet Tubman. But there’s still one thing that I’m a little worried about.

Ever hear of plagiarism?

Well, I thought plagiarism was just copying a whole project or paper and pretending it was your own, but Mr. Lexington says it’s more than that. (Visual description: cut to video of text being copied and pasted into a document on a computer screen)
