Ready-to-use Activities for Teaching - a "consumable" item?
- September 17, 2008 @ 11:31amRyder411 says:I have a book called "Ready-to-use Activities for Teaching A Midsummer Night's Dream." It is made up of ready-to-use activities (obviously), complete with a space for the student's name and the date. It seems like the point of this book is to copy and distribute these activities. Each page has a copyright notice. Can I make unlimited copies from this book and use them with my classes year after year? What's the difference between this and a workbook?

The difference is that a workbook is intended for the same student to use from beginning to end, whereas a black line master book allows the teacher to pick which activities the students complete. Also a workbook cannot have multiple copies made of the individual pages since that violates copyright but a black line master book is created with that purpose in mind. I would also guess that the black line book was more expensive than one workbook would be.
