This research answers the question: “How can teachers effectively manage plagiarism and AI in high school classrooms?” In many classrooms, plagiarism is an issue, but for many students it is something they don't know how to avoid. With Artificial Intelligence (AI) software being the new shiny tool that can be used for crafting written assignments, it is important to know how educators can use it within the classroom in productive ways. Lufstrom (2011) explains that educators need to be "proactive rather than reactive" when it comes to plagiarism and AI within the classroom. AI can be a tool instead of a burden, helping our students learn on their own and with their teacher as a guide. This project includes a curriculum guide to help teachers in all subjects teach students about plagiarism and AI. Within the curriculum guide, teachers can pull mini units to help students with paraphrasing, citing and referencing. Teachers can also pull mini units to use AI within the classroom. One example is having AI quiz your students. Students can go into ChatGPT and ask “quiz me on Yellow Wallpaper” and AI will generate questions for your students to answer. They will have the opportunity to practice without the fear of failing. As technology advances and plagiarism becomes easier, educators need tools to best serve their students.
