Unknowingly, it does look like I infringed on copyright laws for Disney myself this past June. I have a student that had major brain surgery this summer. He loves princesses, so I took Belle, Sleeping Beauty, Jasmine and Cinderella from the internet and put the faces of the four adults in our classroom on the character's heads. We did it because we knew that he would love to look at the princesses while he was in the hospital and he would know we were thinking about him. It never occurred to me that this would be considered an infringement of copyright laws. I was just trying to cheer up a very sick little boy and make him smile. My actions may have directly affected my district and my job. I would hope that it might fall under "fair use" but I really don't want to fight Disney! I now know not to do that again!!!!
I then went in and used the Creative Commons site to create a license for my Face of the Classroom and posted it to my site under the "Home" page.
I really like this site. I work with little people so this is not something I can use at this time, but what a great site for upper elementary, middle and high school! The feedback including grammar, Plagiarism, number of words, style, word use, etc. is very inclusive for "writers" of all ages. I know when I was in high school, my instructors were always talking about plagiarism but we never had this kind of access to check our work.
