Lack of time, support, and opportunities for collaboration contribute to burnout and attrition. So imagine if you could give every teacher in your district a resource that fits their individual and shared needs. Teachers would not only feel supported, but they’d also have more time to focus on what matters—keeping students engaged and motivated. Gale In Context: For Educators meets the need for high-quality instructional materials in elementary, middle, and high school classrooms.

With Gale In Context: For Educators, you can set students and teachers up for success by creating a collaborative and inclusive teaching and learning environment. For Educators removes many day-to-day challenges with organizational tools that lead to more opportunities for collaboration and streamlined communication between teachers, librarians, and curriculum leaders. Designed to work in tandem with educators' existing workflows, For Educators offers a simpler way to get current, relevant digital content into the hands of teachers and students.

How Curriculum Leaders Can Support Teachers

Our cross-curricular digital resources support differentiated instruction, professional learning, and collaboration within the district. Increased collaboration breaks down silos and builds relationships, which can help minimize teacher burnout. New teachers sometimes lack the range of experience, instructional materials, or archives of resources to approach teaching with confidence. Gale In Context: For Educators can be a way for you to house lesson plans and accessible curriculum tools for both new and more experienced educators. The opportunity to partner with learning experts and access supplemental materials gives teachers the extra level of confidence they need to be successful. 

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

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.
