When using high-quality published content, K-12 curriculum developers and educators can deepen student engagement by better personalizing, adapting, and infusing more creativity into instruction. However, obtaining permission to use core and supplemental texts in curriculum and instruction can be difficult and time-consuming.

The Annual Copyright License for Curriculum & Instruction from CCC (Copyright Clearance Center) provides faculty, staff, and students district-wide with the copyright permissions they need to reuse articles and excerpts from a wide range of publishers in curriculum and instructional materials and online platforms such as learning management systems.

Teachers and staff can share excerpts from over one million works covered by the license with students in curriculum materials such as supplemental readings, worksheets, tests, quizzes, classroom handouts, and other materials used as part of instruction in organized learning activities.

The license allows you to use excerpts or articles from:

  • Fiction and nonfiction books
  • Magazines
  • Newspapers
  • Publisher websites

Join Samantha Kalman, a former K-12 educator, as she explores the license, including how it works and what it covers, its current adopters and participating publishers, and the benefits it brings, such as:

  • Making it easier to use excerpts of timely, diverse, local, and inclusive content when developing curriculum and instructional materials
  • Saving time and costs associated with obtaining permissions from multiple publishers on an individual basis
  • Gaining predictable budgeting for copyright permissions with one annual license fee
  • Minimizing your school’s copyright infringement risk while respecting the intellectual property of others

This 45-minute webcast will include a live question-and-answer segment. All registrants will receive a recording of the webcast via email after it has concluded.
