Box. Alright. So with that, let's get started here today.

Welcome to your training session for Iowa. Aea.

My name is Tammi Burke, and I'm your Gale trainer, and today we are covering Gale In context elementary.

So we will explore Gale In, context, elementary My focus for you today is to leave this session with a better understanding of the content available.

Some hidden gems available within Gale In context, elementary, and also the tools and features that are available there for you all and for your students to utilize this resource and to support accessibility any questions, that you have throughout the session please feel free to use that Q.

A back. So first we're going to start with an overview of Gale In Context elementary.

And then we're going to explore content and features at the end, or any time during the session.

Please feel free, to ask questions, and I will share with you at the end of the session, where you can go for additional support, either one-on-one support with your customer success Manager at Gale or also just the demand support we have a lot of on-demand support materials available to access your

Iowa Aea resources. You can utilize the site and access all of them.

The first page you land on is the elementary page. So if you aren't using your direct Urls for your resources for your individual library, this could be the access point that you're sharing with your users so both options are available the Gale support, site does have all of that information and again, your

customer success managers are really helpful to walk you through and capture those direct urls, or maybe it's icons you're looking for, or maybe you just want all of the marketing or training materials for resource they can help you with all of that I will cover some of it

today. Just so that you're aware of what you have, and where you can go to find it.

but for a deeper dive, I do suggest into the support materials I do suggest reaching out to your customer success managers.

So when you click on that link or access that link, you will be taken to this page where you can access your elementary resource.

It's right there at the top, the very first one.

This is also the same path, that middle schoolers and high schoolers can take.

There's a section for educators organized by subject or just the full list of resources.

If I have a middle schooler that's accessing this is what they would see, and the resources they have available.

And then high school. This is what their page looks like. So all of them are.

There under the portal, so it is easy to access, and if you get students utilizing this path, they have that moving on to middle school and high. School.

But, as I mentioned, if you would like the direct urls for your individual resources, so you can track usage.

then I would suggest utilizing that information and reaching out to your Csm.

Or customer success manager, if you need help. So you have quite a few resources.

Gale resources from Iowa, a Ea. We are covering just one today, the very first one here, gale in context elementary.

But since I have a virtual room full of elementary folks.

I do want to share that. We call you. No, You do have available the 3 building blocks.

So gallon context, elementary, And then students move from there to middle school and from there they can move on to high school.

All 3 of these resources are general reference. Cross-curricular. So you're going to find a little bit of everything available within these resources, And then we have additional resources available like litfinder litfinder is great for middle school and high school students you may find I think

it's still too high level, I mean, not high level for the teachers, but to bring into the elementary classroom that content might be a little bit higher level.

But your your elementary teachers may find some information there. What lit finder is is full text content, or full text documents of poems, short stories, speeches inaugural speeches.

You'll find some plays there also. I think I said short stories, novels, and some novels available to high school is used at both middle school, but primarily at the high School.

Level anything with one file in the title is going to be periodical, content, and then the only other one I'm going to mention today is well, 2 health and wellness which is great for counselors.

Now, this might be really helpful in your buildings, because we do have great topic pages on anxiety and stress and depression and bullying, and that type of information that could be helpful for counselors or counselors to share with parents, helpful information there and then the last one for all your

teachers, educators, Reference complete as a former elementary school teacher.

This resource is extremely helpful. I found a lot of great content in there.

I've even pulled content into my training sessions when I was looking at specific teaching approaches or utilizing tools within a classroom, I looked there for documents on okay, I'm looking how do I create tech sets and how do I support, this with our gale resources.

So that's a resource I actually went to for one of my trainings to share with you all during a session.

Okay, let me know if there are any questions on that. But let's talk further about Gale Ining context elementary.

This is a student-centered user experience, and it's very kid-friendly.

We have won multiple awards for this resource. One I have up here in the right hand corner, and that's the second learning award.

There's very rich content. This really allows your students and teachers to search through over 16,000 images, 600 videos, 1,700 charts and graphs.

And so much more. We just recently over the summer at started, adding info graphics, and I'm going to share those with you today which is really exciting to add that type of content and our content editors are working hard to add new and unique content.

Available within this resource, you'll find that interface dictation that you can toggle on and off.

Now this is separate than the Listen, button. This is the integration Dictation gives students the ability to turn when they turn this on wherever their cursor lands will read that text so it really helps with navigation, If the students need the document read aloud, to them then there's, another feature for

that. But this helps with navigating through the resource itself.

You also are going to find these, I wonder? Questions available They're on the home page They're on the topic pages, and they do encourage that inquisitiveness and curiosity that students have especially at the elementary level and then the visual topic.

Tree, so the topic. Tree is a great way for students to explore the content that they have available.

It is very visual. There's even a little bit of movement involved, but it really helps students drill down visually to find exactly what they're looking for.

So the topic tree is very handy for our younger students.

Student centered user experience, rich content, so content. You have available.

You're going to find news from publications designed and written for kids also are fun.

Facts are located under the news Tab. Now this is on the homepage.

You would see topics, news pictures, and videos. So our fun facts are located there.

I'll share that with you today. You also have. There we go pictures available so you can filter by search for a certain term and find all the pictures that we have right from the homepage.

But they are also going to be on those topic pages, or show up in your search.

Results, too. And we have great video content to further engage those younger learners.

It's great. I love the video content for not just when you're teaching a unit or a lesson, but also great.

For even just brain breaks. I mean, if you're studying penguins, why not watch a video on penguins during your brain?

Break, for example, it's also great for utilizing.

If if you have teachers, creating tech sets, and they want to use a video, or project-based learning, it's a great tool for just to name a few options that it can be utilized within the classroom So we have topic, overviews pages.

This one is on animals, and at the very top of every topic overview page, such as animals we have that high-level piece of information available.

We also have that visual topic tree where students can drill down so once they've clicked into the topic of animals, they're going to see all of these sub subjects available.

That they can then click into and be taken to the actual topic page.

So once they select a topic such as penguins they're going to find this high level overview.

So we have an image an overview of the resource.

These overviews are leveled, leveled one and level, 2 level.

One is generally lower, elementary level; 2 is generally upper elementary.

I'll talk further about that. And, lexile measures in a moment.

We also have quick facts available right on the topic page.

So these are really helpful and ready to use information that students can pull into their reports or for general interests.

Once you dive a little deeper, and you do click into one of those documents.

This one happens to be one of the say overviews that are on the topic page You're going to find that leveled content I mentioned.

So you have the ability in real time to switch from a level one to a level 2 and field and users can filter that and search by laxile measure so they can even filter further if they need to highlights and notes is a great tool that allows students to annotate and track questions and ideas

that they may have while they're reading their content or reading their document.

You also have tools to support accessibility, such as listen and translate.

You can translate the text into over 40 languages. We also have a new display option, which I'll share with you where we do have the open dyslexic font available some tools I want You to Keep in mind git.

Link how to share content. So you can use git link.

You can share to. Well, you can share to Google classroom teams.

You would have to use the get link tool, and then you have the son to send to Google or Microsoft.

If you're using a learning management system such as canvas or schoology, you can utilize the get link tool.

But you can also share content with students by embedding it right into an assignment.

There is some setup on the backside of your learning management system, with your gale resources, but once they're all set up, if you're creating an assignment, then you can pull that access scaling context elementary and pull content.

And embed it right into the assignment. So if you want to show a video, you would have that video, as soon as the students click into it, it would.

It would play for them just to just use an example.

Now, some may be using seesaw. If you're using seesaw, then I would suggest using the git link tool, and I'll model that for you today tools to support accessibility transate font size display option, and listen I shared a little bit about these already.

Highlights and notes. I also shared a little bit about, but this is great for encouraging that, and color, coding and annotating.

And then to develop research skills and elementary. We have the topic tree topic pages. And then, of course, every document, image, video anything within your gale resources has the citation already attached. But we do also have separate the sitesitation tool

When you're embedding content in your learning management system.

Here are 2 examples: this one on the left is embedding an article, so I actually embedded an article from a resource that I believe it's middle school gallon context, middle school I used but I was able to embed that document that happens to have critical thinking questions right within my

assignment here on the right, in schoology, for an example, I embedded a video.

So my students click into that assignment. They can go right to that content.

They don't have to go anywhere else. They can live right in that space.

If you need help, getting all of that started This is where your Gale customer success manager, can support you, or they work directly with your tech people, too.

Alright. So let's explore. Let me go into the resource itself.

Please let me know if there are any questions that you may have, make sure that's sharing correctly.

Good, it is okay. So accessing the resource, of course, as I mentioned, you can go through the Iowa Aea site, or you can also use your direct urls while I am talking.

About that. Let me share your consortia page with you, and this is where you can get all of your product.

Urls. This is also a great page to bookmark.

Alright. Now I'm gonna go back into the resource itself and talk about a few of the features here now, right at the very top.

I have signed in with Google. I could have signed in with Microsoft if I was using Microsoft one drive since I'm set up as a teacher as soon as I sign into Google I can access my Google classroom I also can translate the interface So the the navigational tools at the top of

my of my resource. This is where I can translate the navigational tools to over 34 different languages.

That's separate than the translation that happens when you're on a document.

So this is to translate these navigational tools. You can see I am landed right into topics.

Here's my I wonder questions. Here's all my subject categories I have available.

I also have news articles. So I start with a few samples at the top, but I can search for certain news articles, and below, here's all my fun.

Facts for November so, and we even have.

Some our celebrations, like day of the dead, which is happened happening today today yesterday and today.

But we also have Alice in Wonderland was published, so that type of information that we have available national.

Did anyone know it was National Bison Day on November fifth?

So coming up later this week, I love to come in here and see what is available and what's happening this month, because our content editors pull this great information out.

I also, if you are ever in a situation or in your building, if you have a computer lab or you are helping students log in which oh, my, do I remember those days as an educator, as an elementary educator and having to help everybody log into the resource we can help, with that single sign-on.

and an easy access into the resource where they're not stopped with a password.

Our customer success. Managers can help with that. But as you're waiting, it takes some students sometimes a little bit longer, and some are really quick and eager to learn.

And get in there to the resources, have them jump into the fun.

Facts for November click into news and see what's happening, and maybe turn to their partner, turn to their neighbor and share something interesting that they found on this page so, and you could see everything's linked out below.

So here we have Alice in Wonderland is published, and I can click on more about Alice.

Read, additional content. Our pictures are all here, and you can quickly fill her down.

We're gonna do a quick filter on plants, and there I just did a quick search, and you can see all of my images.

I have available. You'll also find within this resource.

I I always love to show this labeled and unlabeled illustrations. So under plants.

If I were to do a basic search on plants, it would pull back more than just images right.

It would pull back all of my great content. But I am going to find these types of images, where, if you see an unlabeled illustration like this one on parts of a plant, we also have the labeled version of that so this I love these unlabeled illustrations and this is one of

those hidden gems. So here's one of my tips and tricks.

That I do is you can actually do a basic search as teachers and librarians and media specialists for unlabeled, and it'll pull back all of the images that we have like this unlabeled illustrations that you can utilize in the classroom and I love it to check

for understanding, and then, if we see the unlabeled, we will also have the labeled version.

So if I'm looking at plants, if I did a search on plants, I would see both the unlabeled and labeled versions of this document.

But what I love it is because at the bottom it's asking, Can you identify?

And it's giving you basically a word bank. I had a library or a It was a teacher actually share with me elementary teacher.

And she said, Oh, I can pull this into Google and make a word bank with these terms and have my students labeled this picture, And it's really easy to do because you're sending it to your Google, drive you're adding it turns it into a Google, Doc, you just have to put you know, a place.

For students to write their name and create that word bank and have students label that content.

So just an idea of how these images can be used, and as I said, I was in pictures, and I just did a quick search on plants and that's where I found that content I'm coming to you from Michigan, So this is what it looked like, about 2 weeks ago. Now.

The trees are pretty much empty here, but that's that looks very, very familiar to where where we're at.

But great learning for your students. Looking at the video content.

Same idea where I can do a quick search. Let's do one on life cycles that's going to be one of our searches today, and I can see all of the video. Content.

I have available. So it's a quick way to filter down that content that I have on this on this tab or within this tab.

Okay, let me know if there are any questions now. If I were a student and I was working through this, and I needed to tag on the sound and let me see, turn the volume up Quite high.

Here, so by turn the sound on! Move my cursor pictures.

Yes, yes, you can see how that tool can help me navigate through this resource.

Okay, Let's go into a few of these topic pages and talk about what you have available.

Now you are going to find you have animals, which is probably one of our most access topic topics.

The students love to look at and learn about animals as a as a former teacher, I we did a unit I'm in Michigan, so in the winter was birds, and we did penguins because of the snow.

And I tell you these my students would get their hands on any piece of information they could about penguins, and they would.

Do you know the public library was cleared out, their school library was cleared out.

I had my own collection of books, and we would. We'd go online and look for content.

I didn't have access to these digital resources. I wish I would have, because parents were asking me where can I?

You know what what's available for my student, for my my child.

They want to know one more. They want to know more. They're interested, and I want to.

I want to participate with them, so why not share this resource with parents, too?

I mean, students are very inquisitive and and there's a lot of great information here.

So I animals is definitely a hot topic with elementary students.

You're gonna find great information in geography We're actually going to go in there today.

we have literature talking about literature, genres, people, If you're looking for presidents or inventors, or actors and athletes, you're going to find historical figures under that people section one of our newer ones is plants, and if you notice it's a little bit more focused, and

so there's fewer topic pages here available, I should say our subject areas here available in plants.

But you are still going to find if I click into types of plants, I am still going to find some great topic pages.

Let's go back to that homepage and then you're going to find science and social studies and sports technology all available here on the homepage.

So let's first go into geography. I want to show you a topic page and a hidden gym that you have available.

So if I wanted to go into, I could go into maps and globes.

You can see quite a few different subtopic play pages, available lakes and rivers.

If you're teaching about land forms, mountains, and land features, we're going to go into us States and let's go into Iowa.

So here I am on the home page or the topic page for Iowa.

You can see I have an image and an essay overview.

I have some quick facts. You be Iowa, became a Satanate in 1846, It's the 20 Ninth State, and it's best known for its agriculture and producing livestock below we have more information about iowa organized in these these content types or these

boxes or buckets, book articles, magazines, newspaper biographies.

We have some pictures, we have some video content available, and at the very bottom we have related topics, and that's going to be on every topic page.

You're going to find that layout. So your students will get really used to when they access the topic page, seeing the same type of layout.

Now the content, of course, is going to be different, but it is going to be the same layout on the if they click on the keep reading on this essay overview.

This is where Oh, this one is. Just let me go back.

That isn't a good example. I usually go into water cycle, so usually, we have.

And and I actually will take this back to my content editors.

But we usually see at multiple levels for that essay overview.

What I want to show you here is where I should have gone initially, is within the picture section

We've been adding these infographics. So here's one for Iowa, and it has the state symbols.

The bird, the tree, the flower, and the stone, the state stone.

You're gonna find these types of infographics available in different subjects It there is one for every State.

They are also available in animals. You're going to see some there.

Some are available in sports like football, for example, is where you're going to see some of these infographics, and they're all slightly different.

So if I were to go to Let's go to football

And again. They're always going to be under pictures. This one is right here on the homepage, but you have a couple here tap su super bowl winners, super bowl Mvps Let's Go into all the pictures.

I didn't know we had so many available all-time touchdown champs.

Get those boys reading right, and or in girls. I shouldn't shouldn't just say, boys, but I know my son was hard.

He was hard to get him to read and one of my 2 girls devoured everything in sight.

Now the older one devours everything inside, so they all love to read.

But this is a type of information that would have, you know, enticed a little bit here.

So you are going to find those types of interactive or not interactive infographics available here in pictures.

You can filter down to. I think it's images.

How I just learned this yesterday. So yes, here we go. So image, and this is where you're going to find the resources that we've we've published here.

But super bowl Mvps, for example. Okay, alright.

So let's just go to I showed you a couple of hidden jumps to kind of get you excited about what you're gonna find Here, let's look at this as if we're approaching it and we were doing a unit.

On the water cycle or I'm sorry. Life cycle, not water cycle is do life cycle today?

And I were to go into science, and I would go into earth biology and nature.

When I do click into biology and nature, you can see all of the topic pages I have available pyramid food, chains, and webs ecosystems, habitats, life cycles, even overpopulation renewable energy, now some of these you're going to find on other subjects

also, if they relate so renewable energy, might be on another subject.

Kat in another subject category, because it relates to that, so that you will see them in multiple places.

We're going to go into life cycles And now let's look at that image and essay overview.

I'm going to click, keep reading, and here you can see I'm in a level one in our level one.

We have some vocabulary words, and then information about life cycle.

When I click into a level 2 my image changes, and instead of vocabulary, words I may see main ideas.

I might have another text feature. This one just has information about early growth and and it's a little bit higher.

Level, Now you may be wondering. Well, okay, what lexile measures do these apply to level one and level 2?

Well, let's go back to that topic, page, and this time I'm just going to click into book articles, because over here, on the right hand, side, once you click into any of the content types and I clicked into book, articles, you will then see, the filter your results option and over here, on the

right content level gives you exactly that level. One is up to a 500 level, 2 is 5 o one to 850.

We also have a training document that has all this information listed.

You can access it right from within the resource. Here on the home page, at the very bottom, there's a section called Educator Resources, and we have that information linked out there it also lives on the gale support site.

So, you're going to find anything about gale tools, and this would be considered a gale tool.

You're going to find documents related to that. So here's We do.

Have one on the laxcel measures, but the quickest way to find that content is if you're in product, you can go right to the content levels here, and you can see and again one is generally lower.

Elementary. 2 is generally upper level, 3 is moving into middle school, and then high school, and all the way to undergrad even.

Here's a little this is new. What? Our content level.

So that's a brand new tool that was added there.

content level icons, and you can see a little bit more.

You can view all topics available related to the content levels.

But if you needed more information, it is there. If you noticed at the bottom here.

Now, if I did wanna level this content down, and I wanna make sure that I don't have any level.

Three's, because there I will tell you, with magazines and newspapers they tend to skew, sometimes skew a little higher.

So you may find some level three's and force. We have those great tools to support accessibility which I'm going to show you now that soon as can.

Listen so I don't like to always cut these out completely, because they can listen to the content and comprehend that information that way.

It doesn't necessarily have to be at the reading level.

But if you are, you want to filter down just to the reading levels, I can apply this.

These 2 filters and it applies it to all of my content at once.

Now couple different things. If I wanted to share this filter content by level one or level 2 with my students, so great for differentiating instruction, I can use the get link tool I can use the get link tool, at many places. This is just one of them so I like to point out that you can filter down your information.

And then share it with so teachers can do this and share it with students.

They can use the get link tool, and it creates a persistent URL back to this exact spot.

They could also pull this information into Google, classroom. So both options are available.

If I were on the life cycles, Home Page and I wanted to grab a link to this topic.

Page. I could do that if I wanted to pull this topic page into Google classroom, I could do that.

Too. Let's actually do that. Let me share with you.

It does open in another screen, so bear with me as I have multiple monitors open here, There we go.

So it's Google classroom. I can choose my classroom.

Maybe this is my class. Choose my action. I want to make an announcement.

I click, go.

This is my topic, page and and maybe I wanna call it unit, and I can even share this with my colleagues.

Maybe I'm teaching third grade, and I wanted to share this with my colleagues.

I can post to my classroom and share it with my colleagues.

Maybe I do. Maybe I have the my colleagues set up. Besides all students.

I have another section here where it is My colleagues, you know, study on life cycles.

Okay, And I'm gonna send this to all my students, because that's really the only category I have available, And then post.

It Now, once I post it, I have the ability to view that content.

So before. I do let me go back to sharing my browser with you all.

And then once I click, view, it opens here, and I can see it's getting ready.

I have this unit study on life cycles, and it's posted right below.

So this is, if I make an announcement. If I hi here, that's an ebook.

I don't want to go there. Here's a basic search.

So coding for second graders. This was a basic search I did.

They had ebooks. Here's an assignment on games, you know.

So when you create an assignment, it's gonna look different than when you make an announcement

But it's really quite seamless to add that content into Google classroom, let me go back into my topic.

Page: Okay, so keep that in mind that. You can use Google classroom and get link.

Now here's another tip. If you are using a learning management system, here's one thing to to note is when you're sharing a large selection of information such as an entire topic, page, or you filter down your content by reading level at that point that's when you would want to use

the get link, even though your Gale resources will be so set up within your learning management system.

The reason why you use git link in those scenarios is because it's a large collection.

It's a curated collection of information, either by us on a topic page or by you using those filters when you can embed, is when you are at the document level.

So you do. Have to be at the document level. So let's go into.

Let's go into book articles, and I'm going to model that for you.

Let's go in. Let's go to flowering plants.

This is a level one, and this document, this is one of our essay overviews, where I can jump from a level one to a level 2.

So I'm in this document, and I want to share this in my learning management system.

I would first have to have the resources set up. My next step would be is to click into create an assignment, and then at that point at the top, Let's see, in canvas.

It's a little plug. So I create an assignment.

There's a little plug there, and that's where my gale resources would be.

I would open up Gale In Galecontext elementary, do my search, and then I would see 2 blue buttons here at the top one that says in bed, and one that says link to schoology, it's the little link icon a little box with an arrow and that you're going to find there

at the top one. But you first have to do something create an assignment before you can embed content into it.

So that's the the difference. There Now, when we're at the document level, let me talk to you about some of the tools that you're going to find.

So my contextual toolbar will change, depending on where I'm at, within the resource I already mentioned that the citations are attached to every single.

Oh, maybe I So The citations are attached to every single image video.

Anything within this resource. You are automatically going to have that source citation attached.

You also have the citation tool up here at the top.

So if you have students using new or schools that are using neural tools or easy bibs, they can export directly to then copy and paste.

They can change the format I'll send it to Google drive Microsoft one, drive All those options are available.

I can also send this information. I can send it to Google, drive on drive or email that's using that little paper airplane icon.

I can download or print this text. I already shared with you.

Get link. I can use, git link or Google classroom at the document level.

I can also highlight the text. So if I was interested in highlighting the text, maybe I'm interested in this types of plants.

I can highlight it, choose my color.

Maybe this is for paper. I'm writing an argumentative essay.

I wanna save this. I can scroll down further, Do some additional highlighting, choose another color if there's a word I'm struggling with, I can highlight that word click the define button.

And it gives me a takes me to a page out of the elementary Webster's Elementary Dictionary.

Okay, Now, if I marked up my document and I want to save this because I want to use it further, I wanna you pull it into my project that I'm working.

On. I could send it even marked up. So this will, if I send this to Google or Microsoft email Download or print, it'll be marked up for me.

So I send it to my Google drive. It'll be nice and marked up.

It turns it into a Google document, and it stays exactly like this.

So I can save that content until I do to delete it.

I also have some great tools to support accessibility. Let's say, I need this document read aloud to me.

I can click the listen button and it'll read the 2 aloud to me.

It. Also, it's reading down below here, reading this text below, let me go to a document that actually has a little bit more tax.

So let's choose a newspaper document, our magazine.

Let's go to magazine

The butterflies. Lifecycle: Okay? So now let me click this: Listen, button, because you can see the text a little bit better here at the top

Oh, there it goes. Okay, It was a little delay, and there's some features here, too.

I want to share with you, so you can see it's highlighting the it's highlighting the sentence in one color, and the word that it's that is being read in another.

Under this little gear you have some settings, so you have to click the Listen, button.

First open the settings, gear, And this is where you can make some changes to what's being highlighted.

The colors that are being highlighted. The text colors I can turn on which I absolutely love for elementary, the enhanced text, Visibility, option.

I can slow down the speed, and I will warn you it really slows it down.

But great for your English learners. I'm going to close the cell and now, click, play, and that when I turn on that enhanced text visibility, This is what I'm going to see so again.

That is under that little settings gear. The nice thing is is once I set it up once on one document, my whole session.

It'll be on, and I can keep clicking on that Listen, button, and it'll automatically be there, and I love it for those emergent readers, because it's really in grossing and putting that text on the page and pulling it out for them and highlighting the word in

that larger font for them. And that text box. You also have now to close this out I'm just gonna close that box.

I have the ability to make the text smaller, or in this case probably larger, would be better.

I have the ability to change the display Options this happened the other day, too.

Hold on a second. I gotta go back out Zoom tends to mess with my resources a little bit.

There we go! So display options. I can change the color behind the text.

I can change the font to open dyslexic.

I can increase the line, letter and word spacing. Now, I don't have to make all those changes.

I could just make one or 2 of them if I wanted to, and here it is, with all my data option changes.

This also sticks with me throughout my session. So once I make the change on one document, it'll stay with me throughout my session.

I have the ability to translate the text into over 40 languages, and then this little information Icon gives me the publication information.

One more thing about translate. If I translate the text and then click the listen button it'll read.

We have 23 languages that it'll read the document in.

So we have 40 here over 40 here, and then 23 available in that.

Listen button, but it is the ones that are used the most often.

Okay, So again, you have students that are Spanish speaking students, and they want to have the text first.

Translated in Spanish, and then listen to it being read aloud, because it might be a level 3 content level 3.

That's a little higher. They can do that, and still listen to that content.

Alright. So we covered all the tools to support accessibility.

I talked to you about some hidden gems like those those infographics that are available.

We have one other page I want to share with you before we wrap up, and that is the animal section.

When you click into animals you can see again high level information, and then we have all of these great subject categories by clicking into mammals.

We have all of these great topic pages. This one, too, has at the bottom a dish, while we've added more, we have additional mammals that haven't received an image yet, but we do have additional topic pages, and our I wonder questions are based on this subject that we're in which

is animals. So you can see here talking about bears talking about whales makes sense right?

And then cats and dogs are usually number one and number 2 searches.

It's the infographics with these are great.

This one talks about why cats are beneficial to have what are the benefits of having a cat and the dog?

One actually talks about the best dog. Breeds like the the as they're rated, so here it is most popular.

You dog breeds for 2020, and kids love to read that information especially if they're looking for their own dog on that list.
