Day 1...

I admit, I'm no expert on copyright.

After viewing several other blogs and skimming through some of our text, I wonder if I have made any copyright violations in my college or teaching days. (I hope not!) There are so many times I will run to make a quick copy or share something with my students or a colleague, and never think twice about copyright.

Hopefully, soon I'll have some basics up here for people like me, busy teachers (or busy people in general) who find something great and want to share it (without breaking any laws!).

You sound like the rest of us...blogging and learning. I've really appreciated reading everyone's blogs and the different ways we've approached copyright. It sure makes for interesting learning and a broad view of all the issues. I look forward to seeing more of yours!

I agree with you. I hope that I have not violated copyright law, but I think that I might have. I didn't have any textbooks two years ago and had to teach reading. I copied some of a text on the Odyssey, but is was an early 1800s out of print edition, so I didn't think that the copyright still held.

As I have been reading about copyrights, I have become more aware of copyright violations in schools, particularly in creating my own lessons. Also, I really like the ABC theme of your blog. Very creative and effective!
