Gale Makes 'In Context' Resources Free for Eclipse Education
- By Joshua Bolkan
Gale will offer free access to its Science in Context, Student Resources in Context and Research in Context resources through September 15 in an effort to support education around the solar eclipse.
Gale's In Context suite offers media-rich resources designed to integrate easily with curricula and offers videos, articles, charts, images, infographics and more with accessibility features such as text and voice translation in a dozen languages. The suite also allows users to search resources by Lexile score or complexity level.
For the free offer, the company "will spotlight online content on eclipses, including articles, images, audio, videos on how to safely view a total solar eclipse and links to NASA's eclipse live-stream," according to a news release. "The featured eclipse content also includes interactive activities and experiments for librarians and the community. Gale is also providing suggested activities and lesson plans to help teachers more easily integrate the library content into the classroom."
"Gale is committed to providing trusted and timely content that sparks excitement and exploration, while enhancing the learning experience," said Paul Gazzolo, senior vice president and general manager for Gale, in a prepared statement. "Learners of all ages can delve into a vast array of high-quality materials that connect them to this once-in-a-lifetime event."
