Teaching Copyright

When California passed a law in 2006 requiring schools that accept technology funding to educate their students about copyright, plagiarism, and Internet safety, many states considered following suit. However, to date there are few online curricula that help educators to present copyright law in a way that is both balanced and thought provoking. Enter Teaching Copyright, which boasts five lessons that seek to teach students the basics of copyright while encouraging their creativity and curiosity. Lessons cover such topics as copyright and the rewards of innovation, the intricacies of fair use, free speech, public domain, and a review of what students already know. The last lesson takes students through an entertaining and educational mock trial that helps them master the principles of fair use.
