|Teachers have permission to fully download and print all of our materials for use in their classrooms. Our only requirement is that credit is given--i.e., our copyright remains in place.
An exception to the copyright requirement is that teachers are allowed to white-out or otherwise remove the "www.studenthandouts.com" from any page if they are worried about students looking up answer keys on the site. (Just use white-out before making copies.)
What you cannot do: Do not take our materials and pass them off as your own (plagiarism).
If you post our materials (PDFs, PowerPoints, pictures, etc.) on your site, use our originals and, if possible, provide links to this site.
For example: You like the picture of Lenin. You want to post the Lenin picture on a forum. Do NOT save the file to your computer, then upload it to another server or site. Use our URL so that this site gets the "credit" for being the source of the picture.
Another example: Teacher Jane Doe decides to assign our "What Is the Third Estate?" DBQ as homework. In case anyone misplaces the worksheet, Ms. Doe wants to put the worksheet on her class's web page. This is fine, so long as the Student Handouts URL is intact. By URL, we mean that the link is to the original document at http://www.studenthandouts.com/.
Use common sense. We spent countless hours creating these things, uploading them to this web site, and arranging them in a way that is (hopefully) easy to navigate. All that we ask is that you respect our hard work. Treat this web site just as you would anything else in print. You wouldn't rip the cover off of a book and make a new cover with your name on it, then make it appear like you wrote it, and later try to sell it, would you? So don't do that with the materials on this web site.
If you have any questions, send us an email at [email protected] We're flexible.
