FROM THE WRITING SPACES PROJECT Writing Spaces: Readings on Writing, Volumes 1 and 2, is a peer-reviewed open textbook series for the writing classroom.  http://writingspaces.org/essays and http://writingspaces.org/volume2 Many of the chapters fit our pedagogy well, and can help you prepare to teach RWS100. I've found the following useful:

Plagiarism - Defining, avoiding and managing it 

  • Defining and Avoiding Plagiarism: The WPA Statement on Best Practices
  • Rebecca Howard Moore has done really smart work on plagiarism. Here is a list of articles she has written, many of which concern plagiarism. http://wrt-howard.syr.edu/articles.html. You can also see the bibliographic collection on plagiarism she has assembed, http://wrt-howard.syr.edu/Bibs/PlagDefs.html, and http://wrt-howard.syr.edu/bibs.html.
  • Sandra Jamieson and Rebecca Howard Moore's Citation project "The Citation Project is a multi-institution research project responding to educators’ concerns about plagiarism and the teaching of writing.  Although much has been written on this topic and many have expressed concerns, little empirical data is available to describe what students are actually doing with their sources. At present, therefore, educators must make policy decisions and pedagogy based on anecdote, personal observation, media reports, and the claims of corporations that sell “solutions.”...Preventing plagiarism is a desired outcome of our research, as the subtitle above indicates, but the Citation Project research suggests that students’ knowing how to understand and synthesize complex, lengthy sources is essential to effective plagiarism prevention. If instructors know how shallowly students are engaging with their research source—and that is what the Citation Project research reveals—then they know what responsible pedagogy needs to address."
