Writing in your own words

  • Updated 3 years ago
My latest assessment came back warning me about the plagiarism checker and to be careful about how I use resources.  I always use my own words, and only tend to use spider diagrams for ideas, now I'm really worried in case it's picking up on terms like "Ethos, Mission, Aims and Values" or "Local Education Agency" etc which I need to refer to.  Any advice would be a great help because it's made me paranoid about how I'm wording my own words and question everything.

Its very hard not to write in some form of what has been written in the course context, everything the course says is pretty much what we would all write.

What I do Is answer the question in which way I feel is acceptable and then I reflect on the course context to my own words and see if they mean the same but put them in complete different terms.

so many of us have done the courses on Stonebridge I'm pretty sure they have come across the same answer many times.

Just reflect on your work and I'm sure you will be fine.

any quoted you do use put in " these " then just paste the website you used for the information. I had the same problem so make sure you word it differently .. swap words with other words etc hope this helps
