National World Sports State and Local Entertainment Business Recommendations/Suggestions: o Save everything. If you lose all of your articles and cannot complete your newspaper on time points will be deducted. o Know where each article will go & you know that everything will fit properly. o Proofread everything and get others to proofread everything again. **Plagiarism will not be tolerated and will result in a zero for the project. Changing a few words does not make it your work; you still got everything from another source. Paraphrasing or summarizing other sources is very dangerous too. If something is “common knowledge” you can summarize/paraphrase. However, “common knowledge” is a very tricky term. If you have questions about plagiarism, or what is and isn’t common knowledge, ask.
