We offer the following general guidelines when using Stenhouse materials:

  • Provided that you own a copy of the work, you may use and adapt a Stenhouse work for your own individual use without seeking permission; this may include the use and adaptation of reproducible appendices, forms, rubrics, etc.
    • Please note: If you intend to use these adaptations beyond your own classroom, including but not limited to posting materials online, you will need to request permission (see below).
  • You may quote, or make references to, a Stenhouse work (in print or online) in the form of discussion, review, or scholarship, provided that any excerpted material (a) does not exceed 300 words of plain text, and (b) comprises less than 10% of your original work. This does not hold true for images, charts, rubrics, and other graphics- public reproduction (in print or online) of such items requires permission.
  • Any use of Stenhouse material must be clearly and properly cited, including page number, title, author, publisher, and publication date.
