Brief Summary: Abby Young Powell presents her argument that even though plagiarism is taught in schools, most students have not fully understood what it means and its consequences. It could be poorly referenced content in an essay or the use of someone’s ideas without giving them credit. Significantly, the presence of a lot of academic content online is what has largely contributed to this. It can, however, be avoided if students are urged to put academic writing into practice and properly coached on how to reference. They should also be advised not to copy paste online material and to cite not only words but also ideas of original content creators.

For question #3 qustions should not include something you have already learned from the #2 linked article and the paragraph.
