HUSTLE SMARTER, NOT HARDER. FALL 2019! 

Gale In Context: For Educators merges quality, curriculum-aligned content with related lesson plans and instructional materials. This educational resource gives educators a specialized toolkit to collect, organize, customize, and share instructional materials for lessons by easily integrating into their workflow. 

Classroom teachers and school librarians continuously collaborate to ensure middle and high school students successfully meet learning objectives. Their shared goal is to create a positive environment where students can develop a joy for learning, but also have time to achieve standards and give personal attention to all students. Gale In Context databases aid instruction by providing authoritative information in key subject areas to make it easier for educators to support students in lasting ways. While access is a pivotal starting point, educators have asked for ways to connect these digital resources to their curriculum or teaching style. Gale In Context: For Educators helps teachers, librarians, and technology specialists be most effective in creating lesson plans that come alive in the classroom. 

This powerful resource enables educators to give students customized instruction with engaging materials that develop a strong foundation in core subjects, foster engagement, support differentiated learning, and meet assessments.
