    This resource provides everything necessary to teach students about copyright. The unit seems to be most appropriate for the middle school/high school levels for which it is targeted, yet an introduction to copyright at an early age will begin to create awareness.

The pedagogy of this unit includes presentation and interaction, and guides the student through finding, using and crediting open licensed images into a document.

      Wonderful resource. I'm currently teaching an 8 week media literacy/ service learning workshop to middle school students. This week students are learning about blogging and podcasting. This resource will be a great addition to the lesson plan to show youth how to incorporate writings, photos and music into their blogs and cite sources. Thank you!
