Summary, Paraphrase, and Quotation Exercise.
Upload your completed exercise to Turnitin.com and review the Originality Report. You should revise this exercise until all material that should be quoted is, and any matching material that is not quoted is common phrasing and proper nouns. For example, all your classmates will probably have “Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are” appearing somewhere in their exercises. It will match the language in your own, but that is not plagiarism. Not crediting someone else’s words or ideas is what constitutes plagiarism.
The final draft will be free of uncredited outside material in order to receive credit.
