Copyright in the K–12 Classroom
This course is designed to help you better understand copyright, its structure and purpose, and the issues that arise from using copyrighted works in the classroom. These issues can be extraordinarily complex, and we can’t give you easy answers. However, by working through this course and making a plan for applying what you learn to your classroom, you should be better equipped to navigate those issues when they arise.
