Over the weekend I registered my blog with Creative Commons. I did so because I wanted to be clearly express my belief that teachers should be sharing everything.
Well not everything, right?....Yes, everything.
- Lesson Plans
- Behavior Management ideas
- Educational philosophy
- Any and Everything that helps you succeed as an educator!
Let everyone have access to your stuff.
I know this is a difficult concept because here in America personal property (real and intellectual) is treasured above all things.
Obtaining more and more property is the name of the game so it is no big surprise that you find two or three or four or five teachers in every school who hoard over their materials.
I love getting things that are free. So this is how I have chosen to give you the reader FREEBIES.
You may take, copy, use, paraphrase, or just plain steal from my blog. The pictures I create (I don't create them all so be careful), the ideas and resources are all in the public domain and you are free to use it in anyway that you please.
No need to ask my permission! If I publish something you want...take it. I am not going to hunt you down or even ask you where you got it (in fact I would be happy to see someone else use my thoughts).
You don't even have to cite me! "I reserve no rights over my work".
I am not worried about you taking my thoughts and claiming them as your own. I understand why it is a big deal to some...but I just simply do not worry myself with protecting my property.
I love open platforms and TeacherAde is officially open.
