Identify two key elements of the catalog’s Academic Integrity and Academic Dishonesty

Prepare:
• Read the Ashford University Catalog
Academic Integrity (Links to an external
site.)
and Academic Dishonesty (Links to an
external site.)
• Read Module 5 in your course textbook.
• Find a piece of online writing that uses
information unethically. For example, it
might be a source that fabricates
information, a photo or graphic that is
altered in misleading way, an example of
deceptive Internet advertising, or some
other type of unethical use of information.
Reflect:
• Reflect on all the concepts from the
catalog and course textbook and how
they might help you to become a better
scholar and professional.
• Consider how you can apply your
understanding of ethical use of
information to the materials you see and
read daily.
• Think about how the online writing or
graphic you selected uses information
unethically.
Write:

sections and describe how you feel these
elements are important to you as a
scholar and professional.
• Explain how the online writing or graphic
you chose uses information unethically. In
your explanation, be sure to refer to the
two key elements you identified in the
previous step.
• Develop a strategy for how you, as a
scholar, could avoid making this same
ethical mistake?
