Educating for the Future

Traditionally, teaching strategies have emphasized the teacher-student relationship: the teacher is the expert and adheres strictly to the curriculum that supports standardized tests while the student receives the knowledge. But classrooms have evolved. Traditional strategies are often ineffective. Classrooms now require more interactive instruction and culturally responsive teaching activities. Gale In Context: For Educators allows you 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 and students 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.
