I always try to explain to my students in many things that we do that we have to remember the schematics of an iceberg: there is much more for us to see beneath the surface. Not only does the same apply to the process of research, but to the process of reporting on what’s been researched. So instead of researching just the tip of the information and then only reporting on that tip, students needs to see the growth from that tip—like the bottom half of a pear—and then allow their reporting to grow like that pear…but allowing it to be its own unique pear, different from the others (students) in the basket. Join our exploration in processes for scholarly research and writing for our present-day students, and see the many ways of guiding them through scholarly writing and avoiding plagiarism.
