Making Sense of Copyright

A Brief History of Copyright in the United States

I made a very Brief History of Copyright in the United States timeline from information from copyright.gov website (linked above). I liked how this website was laid out so I used the information from it for my timeline. I also linked each time period to the copyright.gov website because they had nice timelines within each time period. Since I am hoping to teach Middle School I made the timeline for middle school audience. I liked that they could see a brief history and then click on the links and learn more if they wanted.

I also used a site called VENNGAGE to create the time line and after I had it all finished realized it was not truly free like I originally thought. But I was able to share it on my twitter account and then connect the link below. Hopefully that works.

    Maureen,

    Hope you are enjoying your time in Kodiak. The weather isn’t always this nice so you picked a great time to come! I enjoyed looking over your time line, I also found the copyright.gov website to be a good resource. I decided to branch out a little more and bring in other cites as well. I found that while copyright.gov gave a good time line the information describing the events was more thoroughly explained through other means. Just a thought for future assignments!

      Hi Sam,
      Good point! I definitely took an easy route on this assignment. I wont lie since I am new at working with screencasts, infographics, and building fancy timelines I was more focused on that then the actual content. I will try to expand an bit more and bring in some more resources and ideas. Thank you for the comment!!
