10 Big Myths about copyright explained See EFF notes on fair use and links from it for a detailed answer, but bear the following in mind: The "fair use" exemption to (U.S.) copyright law was created to allow things such as commentary, parody, news reporting, research and education about copyrighted works without the permission of the author. That's vital so that copyright law doesn't block your freedom to express your own works -- only the ability to appropriate other people's. Intent, and damage to the commercial value of the work are important considerations. Are you reproducing an article from the New York Times because you needed to in order to criticise the quality of the New York Times, or because you couldn't find time to write your own story, or didn't want your readers to have to register at the New York Times web site?
Limites Art law News USA Mr Brainwash works are "not transformative" By Anny Shaw. What Does Plagiarism Look Like? 10 Free Resources I will never forget the first time I knew I had caught a cheater. It was in my first year teaching, and I remember that I really, really wanted to make sure that my kids turned in original work–I was very sensitive to plagiarism, since I had been accused of it once (long story; I will tell it another time).

The Teacher Studio: Learning, Thinking, Creating: October's LOVED that LESSON! Organizing our math work It's time for October's "Loved That Lesson" linky and this month I am sharing a lesson we did last week that I am hoping is going to make a huge difference ALL year with my students! This lesson started in my mind a few weeks ago when I realized just HOW much work we need to do with organizing our math work, working precisely, labeling our work, and so on. I spent some time with my students brainstorming a list of what "quality" math work would look like--and what "precision" means. We spent some time looking over our work and thinking about which of these are the trickiest--and each student set a goal for themselves to try to improve the level of precision of their math work. We have been really digging into the Standards for Mathematical Practice, and it was time to raise the expectations a notch!
