I thought it was alright to make one copy of copyrighted material as long
as it was being used to teach with? Does anyone out there know the
legalese regarding this?

Also, there is a great article in the October issue of MacWorld on page
163, "Copyright and the Visual Arts" for those of you wanting to discuss
what is legal and what is not in creating works of art. (While it is
written for mostly computer users, there is much relevent information for
anyone who creates visuals). There are also great visuals to
compare/contrast the presented arguments, which could lead to interesting
classroom conversations, especially in the middle and upper grades. (I
might use it with my 5th grade class this year).
