Serious answers only. Do I have any chances of appealing plagarism?
In my assignment, most of the questions I answered based on the knowledge from my head. It was only for two questions that I used a reference.
For one of the two I cited everything perfectly, but for the other I forgot to do the in-text citation & the works cited. I thought this was fine because the instructions stated that I only needed one source.
First my teacher stated that she would not be lenient because I didn't even attempt to paraphrase -- which is not true. I wrote up a paper contrasting my answers with its source & everything was paraphrased. She, however, is still refusing to budge.
Based on the information provided, do I have a strong case to appeal, or is the teacher right?
