Making text your own

I’m sure you would never do this, but let’s imagine what might happen to someone just a little like you (or me for that matter). You have left things just a tad late. Well, to be honest, you’ve left it to the absolute last minute. (No one in their right mind could expect you to miss your favorite TV show, and then you had a call from your best friend and then . . . well, you know how it is.) There just isn’t time to start the whole thing from scratch. And the moment you do a web search you find the perfect website. It covers everything you need for your assignment, at just the right level of detail. And a little voice in your head says, “It’s all there. All you’ve got to do is copy it from the website, paste it into a document, and put your name at the top of it. It’s easy. It’s painless.” Wrong. So wrong.
