As part of your plagiarism awareness training class you are now enrolled in after your paper was identified as plagiarized, you must write an essay, supported by sources from the library’s databases, on the topic of academic dishonesty and its prevalence as well as its consequences in the academic and the professional field. Write a comprehensive introduction to this essay, complete with the thesis statement in which you make an explicit point about plagiarism, citing at least one peer-reviewed academic source from the databases and including all sources on the Works Cited page. As you compose this introduction, keep in mind the conventions of this type of writing, the audience’s expectations, the details expected in and relevant to an introduction.
