From a very young age, students are taught to never plagiarize someone else's work. While they are told of the perils of taking someone's words or work as their own, often times it can be hard for a student to see the implications of plagiarism outside of a school setting.

However, prominent in this week's news cycle, students are able to see exactly how the world reacts to plagiarism.

Mrs. Trump has received enormous backlash since the speech was delivered Monday night.
