Here is what happened.
In one of my humanities class, I had to do a project that involved creating exam questions from the reading material and explain why they a relevant in today’s society. In my rough drafts, I would write key points from the readings as a reference for writing my questions. One of the questions I chose was a true and false format for the definition of culture. I made it a false statement by switching the the word culture with civilization. I wrote the definition of culture from my professor’s presentation and underneath I wrote my own definition. Later in the day after I got home from work, I wrote the question into my final draft. I don’t know why this occurred maybe I was tired but when I was writing it into my final draft, I misread and included the professor’s definition rather than my own. I did not include in text citations; however, in the study guide we had to create, I included my professor’s name, the name of the presentation, and where I got the information. I sent an email to my professor, but it has been four days and he still hasn’t contacted me.
