August Spotlight:  Back-to-School!

By Gale Training

Each month, the Gale Training team spotlights new and featured resources to give you ideas on how to use training at your school or library. For On-demand tutorials, Webinars, Materials, and more, visit the Resource Training Center. Below is this month’s “Training Spotlight.”

Say it with us …”Where has the summer gone?”

Seems like back-to-school time just sneaks up on us. Are you ready?

Whether it is helping someone apply to a college or university, finding a current event article, or getting acclimated to the products students will be using for the coming year, we are here to support your library!

Use our proven, mobile-friendly learning resources to make back-to-school easier for everyone:

Student Resources in Context encourages students to use critical thinking skills to help transition them from high school to college. Even better, state and national standards are available with relevant subject links for the specific standard. Access this recorded webinar to get a complete picture of how Student Resources in Contextcan help you, the teachers and, of course, the students.

Research in Context is our NEW middle school product. Its engaging look and ease of use will make finding authoritative information easier – and more successful – than relying on the open Web. Check it out in these on-demands, which you can embed in your library’s own website to help teachers and students.

Bookmarks! With just a few simple steps, teachers can link directly to the Gale In Context articles they want their students to read. Share this tip sheet with your fellow teachers and librarians to show them how to link to vetted searches, get handpicked articles, and create a reading list from just one tool in the Gale resources.

Testing & Education Reference Center (TERC) helps up-and-coming graduates find the perfect next step, whether it’s college, trade-school certification, or a transition into the workforce. Walk them through the links to scholarships, financial aid and distance learning programs; allow them access to take ACT & SAT practices tests; and guide them to a unique resume.
