How can a teacher tell if you are plagiarizing?
How would they know if you copy a movie/show?
In the same way that we can always tell when someone is simply copying a homework problem on here. And plagiarizing is immoral whether or not you are caught.
If it sounds to 'advanced' for whatever grade you are in... Or if your teacher made you cite your work... They can look it up from there.
they can type a sentence into the internet and see what comes up, if they do this several times then they know
They have some kind of tool, go on Google and search "essay checker" and there is this checker that goes through your essay and shows mistakes and tells you if it is plagiarized.
well you see teachers have a lot of time on there hands and they memorize everything ever written and when they recognize it they know exactly where you got it from so stay in school and don't do drugs kids
using big word they know you would never say.
They will enter parts of your work into special programs that search for phrases on all kinds of archives and the internet
They have to be smarter than you
They scan it through a machine that checks the Internet and looks for similarities.
If you and another person have the same exact words and it comes to be wrong.
