Want to Share Lesson Plans? Read Me First!

Great!

Help out your fellow educators by sharing freely licensed lesson plans and other curriculum.

Why does freely licensed matter?

Creators can apply usage licenses to protect their ideas and enforce sharing methods and access. These licenses can either restrict access by companies and individuals unless paid or otherwise authorized, or with free licenses, grant unrestricted and unfettered access.

We recommend only sharing plans and documentation with the following licenses:
  • PD, Public Domain: this material is not copyrighted and no license is needed
  • GNU GPLv3, GNU General Public License: a free software, copyleft license
  • GNU GPLv2: a free software, copyleft license.
  • CC-0, Creative Commons License: Public Domain, this material is not copyrighted and no license is needed
  • CC-BY: Users are free to: remix, use commercially, meets Open Definition. Requires: Attribution
  • CC-BY-SA: Users are free to: remix, use commercially, meets Open Definition. Requires: Attribution-- derivative works inherit the same license.
  • Informal Licenses, such as "Do whatever you like, do what you want to, etc"
Avoid sharing any things with:
  • NC, or NonCommercial
  • ND, or NoDerivatives
A note on materials with no licenses: All copyrightable works are copyrighted by default. Unless a free software license is included granting users freedom, the work is not freely licensed, and therefore should not be shared.

Have you found a freely licensed lesson plan you'd like to share, that meets the above recommendations? Perfect!

Include the following in your post:
  • Name
  • Type of Free License
  • Recommended grade levels
  • Recommended course
  • Link to lesson plan or notes
  • Link to more information
  • Explain how you used this and how this helped
