OK, is it strange that a college in California is using one of my Op Eds as the basis for an English lesson in quoting, summarization and citations?
Apparently Ohlone College, with campuses in Freemont and Newark, California, is using my article about sexting as the basis for an exercise in the proper way to summarize someone else’s work. Ohlone is a junior or community college.
The piece the college is using is mine titled “Teen Suicide Brings Wrong Call for Regulation.”

According to the Interwebs, the institute was named after Indian tribes in the area.
