Hmmm, good question.
Is it plagiarism to use some of my own work in my own work? I just pulled a paragraph from an old essay and stuck it in (masterfully if I do say so myself) a new essay. Is that plagiarism? I mean, I know you're sposed to do new work and so forth, but if it fits, isn't part of the learning process noting connections between things (she rationalized). Someone academic, fill me in here.
