I recently received the following request from a person in charge of a
website which creates lessons for home schools:
The Adventure of the American Mind Home School Partner creates online
lessons for students in grades 3-12. I really like the breadth of your
unit and would like to use it as the skelaton of an asynchronous online
unit. This will be similar to our NC Unit at:
erview.htm . Would this be okay with you?
I went to the site and noticed that it claimed copyright on the materials
published there. Has anyone else received such requests? What publication
rights does the Library of Congress, or we as lesson creators, retain for
these lessons? As a govenrment agency, are all of these materials "public
domain"? I have seen publications that are nearly identical to American
Memory lessons for sale at conferences and wondered about this. Can anyone
enlighten me? Thanks.
