Classroom Copyright Chart

Copyright and Fair Use can be a confusing topic for students, teachers, and school administrators. Fortunately, there are quite a few good online resources to help teachers resolve confusion about copyright. One such resource that I recently came across is the Classroom Copyright Chart created by and hosted on the California Student Media Festival's website. The Classroom Copyright Chart provides teachers with clear explanations of when it is and when it is not okay to reproduce and reuse copyrighted materials. The chart can be viewed online or downloaded for printing and distribution within a school.
