Meeting instructional goals is more challenging than ever. All school educators have to achieve standards and adapt to diverse student needs, and now must seamlessly transition between physical and virtual instruction without disruption, while facing limited resources and even less time. For students to succeed in this or any other learning model, teachers must be successful first.
Recognizing the importance of instruction, the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act provides federal funding to primary and secondary education, with funds specifically authorized for professional development, instructional materials, and supporting educational programs.
Gale In Context: For Educators can help. Building on the foundation of Gale In Context student databases, For Educators is a lesson planning tool that enables educators to find and personalize digital learning content, plan learning activities that work well for remote or in-person environments, and provide equity for all students.
For Educators merges quality, curriculum-aligned content with related lesson plans and instructional tools, including tools for educator collaboration across any distance. And now more than ever, educators need on-demand training and support. For Educators features a Learning Center to help educators self-teach virtual lesson planning and online teaching skills.
With this one resource, all school educators will have a specialized toolkit to collect, organize, customize, and share classroom instructional materials for lessons.
