Students will be introduced to the various ethical dilemmas and real-world impact for many industries from the concept of intellectual property. The culminating project is to create a found piece of art (a music video where the music, video, lyrics, and graphic art are all sourced from other artists' original works). This project will take approximately 4 weeks.

In addition to the AME CTE/STEM focus of the unit/project lessons, educators will find academic lessons in English Language-Arts that supplement the primary core area of study.

This unit is brought to you by Bob Habereder (CTE Music), John Enyeart (CTE Video), Sid Llera (CTE Graphic Design) and Alexia Wilson (ELA) with support from the CTE Online curriculum leadership team and detailed coordination provided by the Course Team Lead Gregg Witkin.
