It is important for students, educators, adults, and creators of all ages to understand the basics of the United States Copyright laws. Not a legal discourse, but this basic overview clearly explains a difficult topic using flowcharts and resource pages for middle school and up. A very special video interview (42 minutes!) further explains copyright rules in an easy-to-understand way. This resource is ideal for writing reports or research projects, but also for those of any age wishing to create in other media, such as printables, film, or crafts. No "pencil work" in this one, but you will refer to the material over and over again.


Great for teachers because:

  • No prep, open and go - great for busy teachers, subs, and homeschool
  • Easily adapted to students of different ages and abilities (especially great for homeschool and unschool environments)
  • All the research and organization is done for you
  • Terrific for discussion starters

Great for students because:

  • Lesson is long enough to cover the topic but short enough to hold interest
  • Little or no teacher supervision needed
  • This is important information for student life and beyond
