After reading the case study, I have come to the conclusion that Tersea has plagiarized, and that she has failed to take into consideration the concepts of justice and human dignity that apply to acknowledging sources in academic writing for many reasons.
Teresa has plagiarized a passage from King Lear. Teresa performed Find-Replace plagiarism. Find-Replace plagiarism is changing key words and phrases but retaining the essential content of the source. (YV) In Teresa’s case, she paraphrased a passage from King Lear and changed the wording of it. She did not cite the source because she felt that she changed it substantially. Although she had changed the wording, she still plagiarized the idea that someone else has published, without citation.
