Good day,
I picked interest in you after going through your short profile and demanding it is necessary for me to write to you immediately. I have something very important to discuss with you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( for full details.
Best regards,
Kristalina Georgieva.

Thank you so much for the ideas and the sample projects. It really forces students to think critically about the Civil Rights movement as well as allowing them some creative room to roam through music. I really appreciate the input

Thank you very much, we really enjoyed making them.

Regarding your copyright question...I am not an attorney, but have always considered my activities and those of my students to fall under the doctrine of "fair use".

The purely academic intent/purpose of this assignment must surely be evident to the holder of copyright. The projects are not created for commercial purposes, they are not for sale, no fee is charged for viewing them, they are posted on a noncommercial web site with no opportunity to Embed them, and the "value" of the copyrighted works has not been diminished in any way.

Found this reference to 'fair use" at the U.S. Copyright Office web site..."Section 107 contains a list of the various purposes for which the reproduction of a particular work may be considered fair, such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research."

Your student videos for the final projects are amazing! I have one question - were they required to use creative commons photos/cite their photo use? Our district is very strict about kids only using non-copyrighted images in projects.

Great assignment! Keep up the good work!

Hey man, so I was looking at M.U.S.I.C and looking for a link that showcases all the cool music stuff you do/did related to health classes - is a link for that or do I just nee d to pull separate links - I have a health teacher who is in desperately in need of ideas.

Any cool examples/ideas/lessons would be appreciated.

Hope the snow wasn't too much up there.

Thanks man!
