Hi Shelby,
I was looking over your list of songs and poems again this morning, and I am even more impressed with this project. I hope you are able to get it ready for posting on TpT soon and then sell a zillion! This is a wonderful way to look at history, especially the music. Historic events, even the tragic ones, seem to produce music as a sort of positive "side effect."
So many of the items on your list are under current copyright, but I think you will still have a superior product with the list itself. Why not work with the list only and include links to places where teachers can easily find the poems and song lyrics? Of course, you can use the titles in your product so that teachers will know which activities go with which poem/song. Please keep me up to date on this project.

Thank you, Margaret, for your words of encouragement! I will definitely follow up with your suggestions. I will do exactly as you suggest with titles and links to avoid any copyright issues. I had hoped to include the lyrics and poems themselves to make it very user-friendly/convenient for the teacher-buyer...but I sure don't want to break the copyright laws.

I've been checking out the copyrightencyclopedia site you sent last night--thank you.

When I created this unit, I shared booktalks with my middle school students for historical fiction that represented each of the wars. Thus--5 literature circles. Every group had the same questions to answer about "the war" they were reading about--(required some research skills-non-fiction reading) as well as short quizzes/reading log on their chosen novel. The final product was a Paideia seminar...which reminds me----can we use the words PAIDEIA SEMINAR without copyright issues?????????

Do you think it is a good product to just list the project idea with the essential question and calendar for implementing the planned project along with the questions that all 5 will answer and draw conclusions about their war, then the book titles, song titles, and poem titles OR should I also include book quizzes, Paideia set up instructions, Paideia rubrics OR just offer several final product possibilities one of which would be the Paideia seminar?

I apologize for taking so much of your time with all these questions. Once I get comfortable with this process hopefully I will be able to share many projects that I have put together. The hard part is knowing how teachers will respond...for example--The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle--I love that book and so do most of the students that read it with me. Alongside that fiction, I developed a non-fiction component about pirates--especially female pirates and Pirates along the Chesapeake Bay. Originally, I had hoped to scan those materials so a teacher-buyer could download and have it readily available. Some of those materials came from books but most of the Chesapeake Bay research came from the vertical files in a research library--which makes it difficult to offer teacher-buyers---yet it is such RICH non-fiction material. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated:)

Also, you probably know the novel TANGERINE---remember how "lightening" was a big issue in the book? Well I actually found a newspaper article talking about that from a FLA newspaper (remember the setting was in FLA)? I would love to include that newspaper article, but if I'm understanding correctly, I should only include the link --right?

How about YOUTUBE? I'm assuming it's ok to include as a link (and hope it remains active), but can you take a screen shot from youtube OR imbed Youtube in powerpoint without breaking a copyright?

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

With deepest appreciation,
Shelby

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I love teaching because I love learning. Every year students bring a fresh perspective and keep me dancing to a new beat for research, writing, literature and poetry. I've been teaching 20 years and have had the good fortune to work in rural, urban, and suburban areas. I prize ethnic, economic, and intellectual diversity as challenges of the real world living right in front of me. I value teachable moments that integrate curriculum goals with collaboration, cooperation, and a set of personal values that students claim as their own code --not just classroom rules.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a huge John Dewey believer! I believe in constructivism--—where students build their knowledge from experiences and preferably cross-curricular, inter-disciplinary experiences that are inquiry-based investigations where relationships and their relevance are discovered –where rigor and reflection drive that exploration and discovery. I love to research 'primary sources' to arm my students with the best defense for developing critical thinking skills and defending their positions. My teaching style favors curriculum design that promotes systems thinking where students recognize patterns, understand relationships, and make connections. Individual and collaborative learning opportunities are provided and recognition of multiple intelligences is celebrated. Opportunities for service learning are promoted to foster civic responsibility. I favor a democratic classroom setting that honors students’ voices and addresses their interests and concerns---Let the research and learning begin! “When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.” John Muir

I love the beach, gardening, traveling, and creating altered books:) I think every lesson plan should include some humor and an affirmation to believe in and to trust oneself.
