But teach her never to take information from the Internet and pass it off as her own work.
Make sure your child knows the following:
It is never OK to download a paper from the Internet and turn it in.
It is never OK to cut and paste someone else’s work into her work. This is the same thing as copying from your neighbor’s paper.
She can rephrase ideas she finds on the Internet in her own words. She should then list the author of the idea and the Web address where she found it.
