comment Taxonomy of understanding: term
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it does not appear to be about writing. It might fit better in Academia or some other Stack Exchange site.

comment Taxonomy of understanding: term
I don't think this is a writing question, so I'm voting to close. But my guess is that you are talking about Bloom's Taxonomy. There's a terrific book by Anderson and Krathwohl that refines the model.

comment Use of copyright across nations
In many countries, you are not required to register the copyright. You own the copyright as soon as you write the text. Registering may help in a lawsuit.

comment Is CreateSpace 100% free for self-publishing?
I added a bit of detail about how much each retailer gets for books printed through CreateSpace. Let me know if that clarifies. I once got a proof with cover that appeared to me to be trimmed wrong. About 1/8" too short and 1/8" too wide. But only once. I suspect it was some kind of process error, and that buyers got the right size. Cover colors are interesting. Computer monitors distort colors. Translating from RGB (if you work in RGB) to CMYK (for printing) distorts colors. You can calibrate your monitor, and work in CMYK, but I haven't yet felt the need to go to all that trouble.

I think it's a 1099-MISC (but I'm away from my office right now and can't check mine).
