Is your material copyrighted or may I use it?
Answer: Yes, our material is copyrighted. Nearly all the original material on the web is copyrighted thanks to laws that immediately copyright original work loaded to the web. That's why loading a webpage is called "published". If you copy other people's work and post it on your own or another site, that work is still copyrighted. You could be in a lot of trouble copying other peoples work in the wrong way even if you're a kid. For more information on copyrights, see this site: Copyright & Fair Use Laws.
But, of course you may use our lesson plans, units, and learning modules in your classrooms with some restrictions. RESTRICTIONS: Direct links to our site are always appreciated. However, you may not make a copy of our material, put your name on it, and turn it in as your work. You may not copy our material and post it on your web page or anyone else's web page. You may not mirror our site. You may not frame our site. You may not pass our site through your proxy server in order to block ads. You may not distribute and/or sell our work without our written permission. To do any of these things is copyright infringement, which is a crime.
Our first feedback (Wow! Thank you!):
"Your units are exactly what I had hoped for
--readable, interesting topics that fit my curriculum objectives
with lots of structured activities to bring it alive.
World History will be the class we all look forward to every day."

Here's our write up in the BBC Educational Web Guide! (We loved it!)
"This is an excellent resource for students and
teachers of ancient history.
The site covers the civilizations of
Ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, Rome, China and others.
Amongst a wealth of information there are lesson plans,
links to related sites and to more history sites by the same author.
Though a little Americanised, this site has a lot of educational value
if you are prepared to adapt it to your curriculum needs
(and if you can ignore the jovial Americanisms!)."
