**Using the handout on Differing Attitudes towards Textual Reuse, to develop characters for your own dialogue.
There are four sets of quotations reflecting various people’s attitudes about plagiarism. Read all of the quotes and discuss what kind of person might have said each of your quotes. Then, using your imagination, develop a character for that person.Give each character a name, an age, an occupation, etc., to help us visualize them. Then, extend their thinking to other types of plagiarism (patchwriting, inadequate attribution, cutting & pasting, buying a paper, using an editor or tutor to help you write, etc.) that they might not have referred to in the quote.
