: APA and Plagiarism Analysis

Due Saturday
  1. Below are two versions of a paragraph from Kasser (2006). Read the paragraphs thoroughly. Then, compare the paragraphs to what you learned in your required reading assignment for this week. Make sure to go back to the original source and compare it to the paragraphs below. Then answer the following questions:
    1. Which paragraph correctly incorporates a quote from the original source, and which would qualify as an example of plagiarism?
    2. How do you know?

Make sure to support your response with references to the APA manual and the plagiarism tutorial.

Paragraph 1:

We, as a society, are short on time. This leads us to pursue material things and lead hectic, overscheduled lives that do not allow us to pursue things of intrinsic value. We need time to connect with our family and friends. However, as Kasser (2006) says, “time is increasingly too scarce of a resource for such activities” (p. 210). In other words, we should find more time to make meaningful connections with others if we want to lead purposeful lives.

Paragraph 2:

While many of us enjoy watching television as a way to relax, according to research from Hammermeister, Brock, Winterstein, and Page (2005), people who do not own a television have a better quality of life. Hammermeister et al. found that children in families that do not have a television are less likely to “nag their parents about getting products and toys” (as cited in Kasser, 2006, p. 206). These families spend more time together playing games and talking with each other (Kasser, 2006). They are able to create healthy connections among family members.
