Plagiarism in a research project can lead to dismissal from a college. Plagiarism at work can lead to dismissal from your job. So how do you make sure you are not plagiarizing? The key is organized research. Organized research starts with a close reading of the source. Researchers take good notes and organize them so that they are useful.

Each lesson includes activities and resources selected to help students learn, practice, and apply research skills. Students will learn how to take good notes, practice organizing information, and apply strategies for organizing and outlining information.
