It's no secret that educators are overwhelmed. From elementary to secondary schools, teachers are balancing classroom management, lesson planning, professional development, administrative needs, the COVID-19 pandemic, social and emotional learning, assessments, and parent expectations—all while neglecting their own well-being and self-care. Administrators want to be responsive to the needs of educators, but sometimes it's difficult to know exactly how or where to invest time, resources, and funding.

With Gale In Context: For Educators, you can set students and teachers up for success and develop a thriving learning environment. For Educators was created to remove as many day-to-day challenges as possible, replacing isolation and stress with collaboration and a more streamlined workflow. Based on feedback from educators and administrators like you, For Educators was designed to offer a simpler way to get current, relevant digital content into the hands of teachers and students. Instead of adding "one more tool" to their workflow, you can provide one resource that does it all—from meeting curriculum standards to helping with lesson planning to up-to-the-minute content from trusted sources around the world. Our cross-curricular digital resources support differentiated instruction, professional learning, and collaboration within and across districts. Increased collaboration breaks down silos and builds relationships, which can help minimize teacher burnout. 

Standards-aligned content. With a subscription to Gale In Context resources, students and teachers have access to primary sources, experiments, case studies, academic journals, magazines, newspapers, books, images, podcasts, and videos.

How Administrators Can Support Teachers

As every teacher knows, they can't rely on one-size-fits-all instructional strategies. They must be flexible and adapt their instruction based on preferred learning styles and student abilities. School leadership sets the tone for communicating the benefits of differentiated instruction and how teachers can implement strategies. Without support from school leaders or the opportunity to model education practices, new teachers may struggle with instruction, classroom management, and burnout. 

Classrooms today require more interactive instruction and culturally responsive teaching activities. Gale In Context: For Educators allows teachers to discover and customize digital learning content and foster an equitable and culturally responsive classroom by supplying diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and social and emotional learning (SEL) materials. 

With a focus on culturally responsive teaching and differentiated instruction, teachers can build a classroom community where everyone's well-being is a priority. 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 educational program support.
