Hi Wildcats! This tech tip is more of a reminder - just because you are working from home does NOT give you the right to plagiarize (steal!) someone else's work! If you are using someone else's work, you MUST give credit! Some teachers will require proper MLA format, others just require the name of the site, name of the book and author, or other way of giving credit to the author. It is WAY too easy to pass things off as our own, and so be smart! This goes for images too! If you don't have permission to use an image from a website (check out creativecommons.org for more information on this), you at minimum have to show where it is from (link, etc.) Don't try to pass things off that are not your own!

Confused on how SoraApp works? Especially on your phone? Look no further! I have a special video tutorial on how to use the app! I have an iPhone, but it should be similar with any Android device as well. Happy reading!

Born a Crime
Author: Trevor Noah
This book was, in not so many words, AWESOME!
Trevor Noah recounts his childhood in Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood - growing up in and just after the apartheid in South Africa, being a "coloured" child where almost no one can identify the same as you, dealing with extreme poverty, his mother's want for him to become something more, an abusive step-father. Where he was seen as "white" by black folks, and "black" by white folks. Hanging out in tough areas (while living in nicer ones thanks to his mom), doing what he needed to do to survive and thrive. Abuse, trauma, violence; that was a part of his childhood. When you hear him speak on the Daily Show, you would not imagine the things he had to go through to be where he is. I highly recommend this book; it gives a perspective that is rarely seen.
