Want to help? These textbooks will work best with sharing.
Part of the cost of a traditional, proprietary textbook is paid out to writers and editors who create the supplementary materials that go with the book: PowerPoint slides, discussion questions, assignment sheets, and other tips that help smooth the way for first-time teachers or those just getting started with a text. To make this book function just as well, we need the community’s help!
There are two major steps to sharing a resource for this book.
Make sure your work is licensed with a Creative Commons license, which allows others to use it (and us to publish it) without paying a fee or asking permission. Please do not share materials here that were created by someone else unless you have found a CC license on those materials!
You can use the Creative Commons license generator to place the right license on your work.
Upload your file here. Any file format will be fine, but naming the file is important. Make sure it is labeled with your name (last or first-last), the type of license it’s under, and a descriptive phrase about the resource. If Jessa Jones uploaded a Microsoft Word file that she’s releasing under a Creative Commons-Attribution (CC-BY) license with an essay assignment prompt, for instance, it would look like: jones-by-essayprompt.docx.
Wherever possible, works provided will be converted into open software formats (i.e., Word documents converted to RichTextFormat files) to maximize the ways to access them.
Where can I access uploaded files and resources?
Excellent question! The library of provided assignments will be available from this website starting in September 2017. If you need a resource before then, please reach out:
