appear. Finally, our familiarity with our
children’s likes and dislikes means we
can assign or encourage writing topics
that genuinely interest them.
Researchers will likely continue to
explore issues of student cheating and
plagiarism from a variety of perspectives.
The best guard against plagiarism in our
homes, however, may simply be to honor
other authors by learning to recognize,
respect, and respond to their work.
WORK OF OTHERS
Reading aloud to our children can give us
early occasions to establish the practice of
reading the title of a work and the author’s
name. This step helps children recognize
that the writing belongs to someone. As they
grow older and learn to synthesize ideas,
make connections, and draw conclusions,
this habit can remind them that the ideas
of others become the basis for forming
their own opinions and making their own
discoveries about a matter.
Young writers with limited knowledge
and experience who are not yet able to
tackle writing reports can still benefit
from writing assignments that allow
them to strengthen their writing skills.
They can practice writing descriptions
of a day, event, or person in their lives.
Imaginative writers may enjoy inventing
alternative story endings or creating
their own stories. Direct them to write
their names on their work as the author,
encouraging them to recognize their
ownership of their creative efforts.
