Do any of y’all have any assignments (written work / research / projects) that are good for copyright? My students are fully aware of copyright, but I would like to get them to do more work to reinforce what I am telling them about copyright. Right now it feels like “we can’t play music / use pictures that we want to use because MR. HOLMES won’t let us”, and not “we can’t play music / use pictures that we want to use because THE LAW won’t let us”. I want them to understand the process of how different groups GET permission to use copyright material.
Anybody got anything I could look at?

Several of the teachers in our school district use the Digital Citizenship and Creative Content Curriculum available at http://digitalcitizenshiped.com/. It's free, just register.
Can we possibly explore what our students are doing for their tv shows?
Toss back and forth some ideas on topics?
Let's share some content! :-)
Right now my staff is YOUNG and new with only four returners... so they're exploring topics we've covered before a few years back, but with fresh eyes...
One story I find interesting to see where it goes is this one:
Two of my students are exploring divorce and how that's impacted (the teen voice) teens and their family trees... between the steps, halfs, wholes, this and that... kids get confused about their place in the families. I find some of their interviews they've gotten very candid and refreshing. I love the raw material they have an am very excited to see where it goes...
Another one I love they found was about a boy who died several years ago... and he could have had a chance of living if his school had a defibulator (sp?) so after his death his family made it a mission to put defibs in all our schools in the region, and they did it. Success! - Great story. We have defibs and they found out where they came from, how they were funded, etc. etc. and there was this great story there.
Right now, we have several good stories on the board, a few of my favorites are...
- "Go With the Flow" Found a place that has a "Flow Rider" standing wave, and a bunch of teens who compete in it. After a little digging my reporter found that one of the teens is top ranked nationally, but a serious heart condition might force him to give the sport up.
- "King of Kicks" Profile on a teenage Sneakerhead... what's a sneakerhead? Exactly.
- "TACO'bout a Good Taco" We're trying a new segment... a teen food segment. We're going to pick a food item for each show, teach about the origins and preparation, then tell you where you can eat.
- Every STUDENT Has A Story. We had the Principal choose a student randomly using student numbers from the Broward Virtual School. The random student was tennis phenom Alexandra Kick, daughter of Jim Kick, who was a running back for the undefeated '72 Dolphins.
These stories will be on the air in a few weeks.. I'll be sure to post a few on our website and on our facebook.
Two of my students are working on an ACNE story. Causes, treatments, etc.
At first they were unsure about who to ask. I suggested picking students who didn't have BIG problems. If the students will big problems overheard and wanted to contribute, GREAT! However, we weren't going to single them out. We also wanted students who didn't have "perfect" skin. They have been amazed at how much people are willing to share. They made an appointment with a dermatologist for an interview (free advertising for him). I am interested in the outcome of the story. This is a completely new topic for us.
