Give credit where credit is due
- Greetings Art Educators,
One list member emailed me and told me she labeled
projects in her art show crediting Incredible Art
Department as the source of her lessons (for those
that came from IAD). I thought this was a nice touch.
Through out the year, she has also shared with me how
she adapted lessons for higher grade levels to use
with her elementary students. Don't be locked into
just "elementary plans" if teaching elementary....
high school plans can be adapted for middle
school...and so on.
I am thrilled to see so many project ideas that are
shared on Incredible Art Department enter into
classrooms around the world. It is nice to see the
hard work of teachers who submit the lessons
acknowledged. If you put a project on your school web
site using one of the plans on Incredible Art
Department (or from any site), think about adding
"Lesson adapted from so and so"...the "this lesson is
thanks to so and so". I know none of you use the
lessons exactly as written. I put the lesson plans on
the site to save you time writing your own. I loved
coming up with the ideas for lessons -- but putting
them into writing was a different story (grin).
More teachers will be willing to share when their
"intellectual" property is respected and documented.
We all know ideas can not be copyrighted -crediting
the source is just a courtesy.
Keep sharing.... Your work is touching so many lives.
