Mrs. Sandra Lepe
This paper is entirely my own work. I have done all of the readings, research, notetaking, and writing required to create the final paper. I have given credit to all materials taken from sources and not considered to be common knowledge (as defined in class), and I have used quotationmarks to show every phrase or sentence that I have copied directly. I have not slightly modified any material from sources and presented it as my own. Material that has been paraphrased has beencredited to the proper sources using parenthetical citations. I have not paraphrased or quoted any sources not listed on the Works Cited page of my paper.
The subject of cheating and plagiarism has beenexplained to me in detail. I am fully aware that plagiarism, whether deliberate or accidental, will result in a grade of zero on the final draft portion of this research paper project. I am also fullyaware that having someone else write all or part of this paper for me will also result in a grade of zero. Such a grade would seriously jeopardize my likelihood of passing this English course, which isa graduation requirement. I understand that no second chances will be given.
I will gladly supply any of my sources for checking.
