Gale Launches Curriculum Tool Kit for Educators
Gale wants to help teachers create lesson plans with standards-aligned materials that are instruction-ready for the classroom. Gale In Context: For Educators takes a suite of offerings that are targeted toward students and provides educators with a single point of access to find the content that meets their teaching needs.
Gale In Context: For Educators provides:
- Instructional Support: helps teachers discover digital learning materials to supplement their classroom curriculum with national and state standards-aligned instructional content and related lesson plans.
- Customization: supports the demand to provide personalized and differentiated instruction with tools and features that can identify and customize resources for diverse classroom needs.
- Time-Saving Workflow Tools: enables time-challenged educators to access curriculum-aligned resources across their subscribed products in a single, educator-focused interface, integrated with other workflow tools and platforms.
- Smarter Collaboration: connects library resources to classroom curriculum and gives educators—within schools and across districts—the means to easily share and collaborate around resources for students.
The new offering is designed for K-12 educators and provides teachers with a portal to find technology, tools and resources in an effort to save them time while enhancing their classroom curricula.
"We know how time-consuming lesson planning can be for educators struggling to find and personalize relevant teaching materials aligned with curriculum standards," said Paul Gazzolo, senior vice president and general manager at Gale. "We created Gale In Context: For Educators to make it easier for schools and districts to integrate quality digital content into the curriculum that fosters collaboration between the library, classroom and administration, providing students with more engaging learning materials to support their achievements."
Gale is showcasing Gale in Context: For Educators at the American Association of School Librarians Conference on Nov. 14-16 in Louisville, Kentucky.
More information about the new offering is available on Gale's website.
