Shmoop's (Natural) Resources for Teachers
We hope that Shmoop inspires and excites students to think deeply and for themselves. Plagiarism, or the act of taking someone else's ideas without giving credit, undermines the original author and the person who plagiarizes.
Here at Shmoop we take a firm stand against plagiarism of our content. Shmoop reveres original thought and a love of learning.
Throughout our content, we present multiple points-of-view and ask tough questions, to force students on to a soap box, to form their own opinions, to argue for those opinions.
We teach students about the perils of plagiarism. See our plagiarism statement for students.
We teach students how to cite Shmoop, and we provide a tool that will help them generate MLA, APA, or Chicago style references for their papers. See How to Cite Shmoop.
We will provide our Shmoop content to anti-plagiarism services upon request, so these services can analyze whether a student plagiarized our content. If a student plagiarizes Shmoop content, he or she will have a high probability of getting caught. Moreover, we reserve the right to terminate use and take legal action against anyone who plagiarizes Shmoop content.
