What’s Your School Year Resolution?
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.
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:
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.
In the recently published study, Trends in Digital Learning: Empowering Innovative Classroom Models for Learning, students indicate that as a result of using technology to support their learning:
Students who use Gale resources (specifically) demonstrate enhanced performance and also said they gained important skills from the experience.
