The Electronic Frontier Foundation has published a set of comprehensive lesson plans about copyright simply titled Teaching Copyright. Teaching Copyright
contains five lesson plans. Each lesson plan includes printable
worksheets, readings, and suggested activities. For teachers looking for
a little more information than is available in the lesson plans, the
EFF has a good list of additional resources including videos on the
topics of copyright and fair use. To stay up to date on new developments
in copyright and fair use, you may want to follow the EFF blog.
Applications for Education
Copyright can be a confusing topic for adults as well as children. The EFF’s Teaching Copyright lesson plans provide teachers with the materials and resources needed for teaching appropriate use of copyrighted materials.
