Study Leader Fair Use Checklist for Copyrighted Materials
This form is designed to help study leaders evaluate their planned usage of copyrighted materials. Study leaders must complete the form and return it, along with the master copy of the material for bound copies, to the Adventures in Learning Office where it will be kept on file as a way to establish “reasonable and good-faith” attempts to apply fair use.

Study Leader Self-Evaluation Form
At the conclusion of each course, study leaders are asked to complete and submit a self-evaluation form. Click below to download the form. Study leaders are encouraged to add written comments to their evaluations. All responses are helpful as the study group leaders and the Curriculum Committee plan future courses. Please submit the completed self-evaluation form to your class representative or to the Adventures in Learning Office.
