Access Training Materials
When your institution becomes a Gale subscriber, educators gain access to a suite of digital training resources. Everyone learns differently, so our training materials encompass a variety of delivery methods.

Training support covers topics from product updates and resource training to best practices for leveraging content.
Find tip sheets and tutorials to help you and your learners master Gale’s user-friendly features. You can browse training materials, by product, to match users with tools to get the most out of their resources. For university students and faculty, share webinars exploring Gale Primary Sources to drive more rewarding research. For primary school students, use activities like a scavenger hunt to teach them how to navigate resources by finding answers to topical questions—featured subjects include everything from fairy tales to renewable energy to the Jazz Age.
Discover Topical Themes
Is there a holiday coming up you’d like to celebrate with your library patrons or an important unit you’d like to cover with your class?
Gale’s digital support archives include Content-Specific Training Materials with thematic collections of tip sheets and activities for special topics and annual observances. Browse a selection of general concepts or discover a curated sample of themes organized by month. For example, February features “Black History Month: 28 Days of Hidden Figures,” and March puts the spotlight on the women’s suffrage movement.
Kick off the upcoming year by promoting Gale Courses in your library with the “This Year I Will…” theme. Instructors at all levels will appreciate the ready-made lesson plans and student-focused activities designed to support each theme.
Leverage Built-In Lesson Plans
Educators can leverage Gale In Context‘s built-in lesson plans and class project ideas for a multitude of Gale resources on the support site. You can find grade-specific activities that address real-world issues and engage your students’ critical-thinking skills. Gale’s classroom resources work across learning management systems to help you easily integrate Gale tools into your remote lesson plans. Fun activities like Understanding Activism Tic-Tac-Toe, a Vaccine Worksheet, or Solar System Trading Cards can encourage your students and library patrons to immerse themselves in their learning and apply it to the world around them.KIB_Trading-Cards
