Library of Congress: 'Six Copyright Concepts Your K-12 Students Should Know'

The blog Teaching With the Library of Congress reposted an entry from another Library of Congress blog, Copyright: Creativity at Work. Although it’s from November 2020, the entry contains information worth sharing. Nicole Lamberson writes:

Whether you’re teaching young students just starting out or preparing older students for life beyond high school, incorporating copyright concepts into your lesson plans can help engage a student’s creativity and foster an appreciation for the importance of protecting creative works. Students interact with copyright daily, often without realizing it. They draw a picture of their family or record themselves playing a familiar tune on their recorder. They perform a monologue from a well-known play or write a short story inspired by another work. They research a topic for a term paper or analyze a novel for a book report. At all ages, students are not only creating copyright-protected works, they are using the copyright-protected works of other authors along the way.

The post cover six topics: Every Is a Copyright Owner, Copyright Gives Owners Some Exclusive Rights Over the Use of Their Work, Copyright Registration Protects Works by Creators of All Ages, Everyone Is a Copyright User, Learning About Fair Use Is Valuable, and Copyright Is Important.

For more information, read the blog post.
