Terms and Conditions

Using WikiTeach

Please post lesson plans, teaching content and tips for teachers. This includes exams, quizzes, homework, activities and ideas. Please do not post content that doesn't belong to you. Do not post advertisements, spam or endorsements, and do not use the lesson-plan space as a message board.

Intellectual Property

By posting content to WikiTeach, you are granting a share-alike full copyleft license on that content. A copyleft license uses copyright law in order to ensure that every person who receives a copy or derived version of a work can use, modify, and also redistribute both the work, and derived versions of the work. A full copyleft license imposes the requirement that any freedom that is granted regarding the original work or its copies, must be granted on exactly the same terms in any derived work. This allows maximum freedom for all users. Each lesson plan includes a copyleft statement that must be included in all copies and resulting works. This provides a mechanism to preserve the copyleft freedoms for subsequent users. -in other words, you give the next person the right to copy or change your content in any way-you are giving it away to the world out of the goodness of your heart and it belongs to everyone and no one.

External Content

The copyleft condition only applies to lessons hosted on our site. Obviously we can't speak for lessons that we've catalogued from other sites. We don't own that content, so we can't give away the rights to it.

You are being granted a limited license to copy lesson plans from this site; it does not create or imply any contractual or extracontractual liability on the part of WikiTeach or any of its agents, members, organizers or other users.
