Please note that in some districts (including the Pittsburgh Public Schools), you cannot connect to many streaming video sources - especially YouTube. Therefore, for that reason and so that you don't have to wait for the file to buffer while showing it, it is suggested that you download the video onto your own machine before use.

Copyright and Fair Use Guidelines for Teachers


What is Plagiarism? (Georgetown University)
Per Georgetown University's site:
"...three simple conventions are presented for when you must provide a reference:

  1. If you use someone else's ideas, you should cite the source.
  2. If the way in which you are using the source is unclear, make it clear.
  3. If you received specific help from someone in writing the paper, acknowledge it."
