What do you think about recycling one of your old papers? I don't see how it would be plagiarism if it was your original work in the first place. Heres my situation - I wrote a 5 page on the history of a topic I am studying in my freshman intro class. Now, a few years later, I am in this non-technical Bacc core class (same dept) and the professor wants a 3-5 page paper on a topic of our choice that relates to the class. My old paper would work well, and honestly, I just want to be done with the class since I haven't learned a single new thing, its just a timesink. Does anyone see a problem with this? Since it was all my own 100% original work, I don't see an issue. Opinions?
