  • Trustworthy Digital Content in All Formats to Support Learning

    Preparing students for college and career means giving them access to quality content and integrating it into their learning.  Top schools require greater reading rigor, development of inquiry-based learning and research skills, and digital literacy and citizenship.  And for those engaged in BYOD/1:1 programs, making digital nonfiction content available from any device is a critical part of the equation.

    • When asked what holds back plans to implement digital learning, principals say their number-one concern is evaluating digital content quality. 
    • Another 33% say that lack of teacher training on digital content within instruction is a key barrier.

    Gale can partner with your school or district to identify and deliver nonfiction content needs, which have increased substantially under new state standards.  Under many standards, reading requirements call for an overall 50-50 balance of literary and nonfiction reading. Requirements increase by grade, and culminate in a 70% nonfiction requirement for 12th-grade students.  These high standards place new pressures on schools to provide trustworthy nonfiction content to support research and learning.

    Gale is uniquely prepared to serve schools with high-quality content, drawing on our rich heritage of publishing award-winning nonfiction and managing partnerships with other distinguished publishers.  We offer a wealth of nonfiction content, including:

    • Biographies
    • Essays
    • Articles
    • Journals
    • Viewpoints
    • Explanatory writing
    • And more

    Content is delivered using teacher and student-friendly tools – in all formats (html, pdf, video, chart, maps, images, infographics, audio, and more), and to all devices.
