March's Theme is Ethical

Ethical students give credit where credit is due. They know how to research for information without plagiarizing from the web.

Technology Coaches, Librarians and Teachers will work with ACS students to reinforce the ideas of Copyright and Fair Use when images and music are used in projects. They will look at strategies to avoid plagiarism and how to give credit to internet resources.
