Appendix C: Agreement to contribute to open textbooks
AGREEMENT TO CONTRIBUTE TO OPEN TEXTBOOKS
I, _________________________________, agree to participate in the creation of Social Justice Picture Books, an open textbook, in collaboration with my professor, Dr. Ruth McQuirter. This work will comprise part of my coursework for EDBE 8P43 – Language Arts, Year 2.
I understand that inclusion of my work in the final text is conditional upon my willingness to license my contributions under a CC-BY license (Creative Commons).
I have read the Guide to Creative Commons Licenses and understand that a CC-BY license allows others to share, use and adapt my work so long as they attribute me as the original author.
I understand that I have the right to request that my name and/or work be removed from the original text, or change the license on my contributions at any stage prior to publication.
