positively and reinforce
First, all of my passages taken word for word have quotation marks around them, and all of my summaries have been drastically rewritten with the words, sentence structure, and creative metaphors all changed.
Second, I have included a parenthetical citation after every “Quotation” and after every “Summary” so that the words and ideas I have gotten from someone else have been honestly attributed to those people.
Third, I have included a Works Cited page at the end of the paper so anyone can look up and check my sources that I used.
Fourth, this paper is my work; I did it all. Some people might have helped me a little, but no one helped me too much. I understand everything that is in the paper and could explain to you and the class everything I have written in an oral presentation.
Fifth, I have not submitted this paper before in any other class or for any other teacher —and will not do so after I turn this in.
Finally, I did not steal, download, or buy this paper, nor did I copy extensively some other paper from the internet, from a friend, or from someone who had this class previously.
