Dear Commons Community,
In today’s NY Times there is an interesting article (see below) on teachers selling lesson plans online. It is written by Winnie Hu who generally covers education issues. The article describes how some teachers are selling lessons to other teachers on websites such as Teachers Pay Teachers and We are Teachers. It also raises an important issue about who owns teaching materials, the school district or the teacher. This issue was discussed during the negotiation a few years ago at CUNY as part of the new intellectual property policy adopted by the Board of Trustees.
