All About C.T.A.E. at C.A. Gray

Avoiding Plagiarism!

Plagiarism refers to a form of cheating that has been defined as
“the false assumption of authorship: the wrongful act of taking the product of
another person’s mind, and presenting it as one’s own” (Alexander Lindley,
Plagiarism and Originality (New York: Harper,1952]2). To use another person’s
ideas or expressions in your writing without acknowledging the source is to
plagiarize. Plagiarism, then, constitutes intellectual theft and often carries severe
penalties, ranging from failure in a course to expulsion from school….

At all times during during research and writing, guard against the
possibility of inadvertent plagiarism by keeping careful notes that
distinguish between your musings and thoughts and the material you
gather from others. A writer who fails to give appropriate
acknowledgment when repeating another’s wording or particularly apt
term, paraphrasing another’s argument, or presenting another’s
line of thinking is guilty of plagiarism. You may certainly use other
person’s words and thoughts in your research paper, but the borrowed
material must not appear to be your creation.
– MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (26)

*Student work containing or consisting largely of plagiarism will be assigned no credit until redone and resubmitted within the given timeframe for late work.

Penny Drive for Uganda

The 9th grade ELA department is raising money for water filtration systems for a village in Uganda. As of now, children in this village must walk over a mile to a muddy river in which animals bathe, with gallon jugs to fill, and then walk back. This is their only water supply to use for drinking, bathing and cooking. The filtration systems will give them a way to clean their water. Can you imagine having to drink and cook and bathe with water that animals bathe and use the bathroom in? We are so fortunate to be able to turn on a faucet and have clean running water! We will have a jar in the Media Center for you to put your spare change, be it pennies, nickels, dimes or quarters. They will take any spare change you can give. Let’s see how noisy you can make our Media Center by dumping your change into our jar. That is a noise we would love to hear! We need your spare change!
(Remember: All money received goes to buy water filtration systems!)

Yearbooks are on sale now! Price is $25. Order yours today!

All payments need to be turned in to Ms. C. Parker in Room 520 or 529. Also, students can place their own ads in the yearbook this year by submitting the Yearbook Shout Out Order Form. For further information, contact Ms. C. Parker or Ms. A. Beamon.
