For Iowa AEA: Gale Resources for the High School Classroom

Discover all your resources available to support learning and curriculum in the High School classroom. View this webinar to explore the available content within the resources and learn or enjoy a refresher on the navigation and document management tools available within your Gale resources.
Duration: 45 Minutes
and now the recording.

So you use the aea one-click sign-in and you're exploring all the different a digital resources available to you as an educator.

You may be asking yourself this. Now, how do I incorporate these?

AEA digital resources into the classroom with me is Janelle from Harlem.

AEA. Janelle you've been successful with incorporating these digital resources into the classroom.

But please share with us what you did. So the teachers that I work with, and all teachers want to know, novels, literature, text that I am using.

What resources are out there that I can give better experiences for my students.

So I like to show them gale in context. You go in there.

You can click, Romeo and juliet that's a typical text that a lot of teachers use you can click on there.

Find the Romeo and Juliet resources, it will give you an overview.

But then it has all sorts of other resources listed at the bottom.

So any news article That's been written about Romeo and Juliet is in there, and teachers can share that with their students real easily, with a link to any Lms system that they're using and all students can then have

access to that they're already vetted so they're high quality resources that you don't have to sift through.

You don't have to spend a lot. of time on and you know that they're going to be beneficial for your for your students. Learning can also work with your social studies.

You could probably even find a science teacher. If you have texts that are overlapping with concepts that they are teaching, you can do some collaboration, Use the same resources.

Now you have more bang for your buck over 2 different class periods, lots of different ways that you can use that

As an educator. How would you cast a wider net for your students?

So we talked about Gale, but if you went into AEA scout it has many Gale serrs, All of those are in there.

So a student or teacher could go into there and they would find a little more resources.

If you needed a research you'd have lots of databases to go through all again with one click AEA scouts.

The way to go. You mentioned content areas can you please describe another example. i'm on the computer science team and with the computer science standards. science flicks would be one that I would highly recommend.

So you could check computer science, technology and any of those things go in there, there's things to read there's things to watch.

They also have labs that you can use, so that the students can go in there and do these interactive labs.

They have activities, too. So there's some vocabulary activities, all the resources are listed there already vetted.

Again that that students and teachers don't have to worry about if I'm.

A teacher and i'm not real comfortable with the computer science. It's already in there.

Some students have more background on computer science. So they might do this activity.

And those who need more information might do this activity. so you can differentiate pretty easily to using that science flicks resource a nice one to check out.

How you encourage teachers to use the AEA digital resources.

I tend to just get in there and start clicking around.

There are so many great resources already vetted, ready to go for you, easy to use.

It makes it more fun for you as the teacher because you don't have to spend so much time. but it's also exciting for students, because they have a lot of options of things that you're presenting for them and they get

to choose. So get in there, click around and see what's in there, for not only the instructional piece as a teacher, but also let your students get there and click around and see what they can learn from all the wonderful resources in any of

those AEA digital resources. Thank you, janelle for sharing your experiences with us.

Now It's your turn, please take janelle's lead and explore these high quality. AEA digital resources provided for you by Iowa AEAs

On everybody. Well, thank you that. What a great message! Let me Now go into

Our training session. and I agree a 100% with all the information that was just shared in that video.

Get in there and start exploring and to help you with that process.

I'm going to start our training and share with you the resources that you have of available to support your high school classrooms. and let me make sure that I believe that sharing is working fine.

Yes, we are good. We're on the the powerpoint now. so today's session is gale resources for the high school classroom.

My name is Tammi Burke i'm your gale trainer?

Any questions that you have throughout the session. please feel free to use that.

Q. and a box. It is open and available, so I will be monitoring it throughout the session.

The focus of today's training will be an overview of your gale resources, and we will be taking a little bit of a deeper dive into some of the best practices for using content tools and features within the classroom i'm excited to

share these resources with you, and you have quite a few I hand selected some of the ones that are used a lot at the high school level, and I wanted to share those with you.

So first we'll talk about iowa AEA access to resources, and then I will start with that overview of your gale resources that you have available.

I will explore the content, and also the features and the workflow tools that you have available within your gale. resources.

Any questions, please feel free to use that. Q. and a box.

I will leave you at the end of the session, where you can go for additional training materials and contact information.

So not only do you have your great folks at the Aeas, but you also have one on one support with your gale customer success managers.

So if you ever need a direct link to one of your resources or if you're looking for specific information, they can help you. With that they can also walk you through all of the training materials and marketing materials available on the gale

support site, but they're your one-on-one support in all things.

Gale and i'll leave you with their information at the end of this session.

So first, I want to share with you. We do have a support site available for Iowa, Aea, and this is the link to that site.

If you access the site you're going to find any of the gale upcoming trainings that we have you're going to find a specific linked out information for your State and the resources that you have available So I do suggest

utilizing the information that's available from gale on that site, and I do add additional training materials.

For example, if we have any tip sheets or student activities or projects available, I link those out on the training page.

Once you access your resources, you will first land on this page which takes you to elementary, but you have all of the tabs available here at the top.

So we're going into high school so I just wanted to take you through this path so that you know your first pages elementary.

You can access the middle school resources. but then we have all of your high school resources listed here, and we have a variety of different product families available.

We are going to spend some time in galing context high school.

We are also going to go into gale, one file, high school addition.

These are very different resources. I get asked a lot Why, what's the difference between the 2, and and how would I, you know?

Why would I use one rather than the other and those are Great questions I will share with you that your in context resources that entire product family that you have access to is designed to support curriculum standards.

It's designed with topic pages you're going to find a lot of multimedia available very robust resources.

You have in the in context, suite our one file suite.

Anything with one file in the title is focusing more on periodical content.

So will you find some periodical content in your in context resources Absolutely.

Will you find even more in your one file resources? Absolutely. so.

Keep that in mind. If you're looking for academic journals and newspapers, and you are more foot.

You want your students to focus more on that type of content That's when you would bring in Gale one file or Gale, one file, high school addition.

You also have a few others that I want to mention. Your largest general interest is gale, general, one file.

So this is used at the public libraries. K. 12, but also academic, used more at the academic.

And then those ap classes you're going to find gale academic one file again.

Remember anything with one file in the title is going to be periodical content.

Looking at a snapshot of your resources that you have available.

We are going to go into Gale in context high school which I've already talked a little bit about.

We are also going to go into Lipfinder today, so to support your Ela classrooms, your English classrooms.

We have lit finder, lit finder provide you with full text poems, speeches.

We have some short stories available there, even some novels.

We have inaugural speeches, You're going to find those full text documents available in Litfinder, and then we have high school addition which I mentioned, and we are going to spend some time in high school edition where it has all of

that great periodical content. and this is geared towards our high school students.

Another. 2 research I want to mention is gale Health and wellness, and I love help and wellness for a variety of reasons.

We all have health classes in our, in our buildings, in the at the middle school level and at the high school level, and gale, Health and wellness helps support those classes.

It helps support physique classes, but it also helps support your your counselors because we have great topic pages on anxiety and depression and stress which students are dealing with.

On a day-to-day basis. So health and wellness is a great resource for those students.

All one we are not going to go into, but I want to mention is health and medicine, and kind of talk about the difference between these 2.

Health and medicine is geared more towards our our medical students.

So this is used a little bit more at the high at a higher level.

Medical professionals use this Those that are doing higher level research use health and wellness.

But you may have some courses in your buildings where health and wellness, or health and medicine could apply and could work for those students that are a little bit more specialized and more focused, and maybe they're going into nursing

and and they need something a little bit higher level. This is a great resource for that.

For the most part health and wellness is going to help check all those boxes that your students need and are accessing through this information.

And then I did briefly mention academic one file again great for those higher level classes.

Any accelerated programs that you may have it had.

It has more scout scholarly journals than any other of our one file resources.

So it is a great resource to utilize it and then last one I'm gonna mention we aren't gonna go into it today, but I have to have to point it out as a former teacher is editors reference complete

This is a fantastic resource for your teachers if they're looking for anything less implants. Maybe they're looking for more information on project-based learning or inquiry, based learning or any type of theory teaching theory or new

ideas. This is a great resource to use it's also a great resource for curriculum coaches, or anyone working directly with teachers.

Even principles that are working with and and administrators that are working with teachers. because you're going to find ideas of what you're observing in the classroom, and you can access that information and educators reference complete to use as

an example for your teachers, so especially those newer teachers, it can be really helpful.

For alright, let me know if there are any questions on anything.

We just briefly went over today. I want to focus on individual resources, and we are going to start with galing context, high school. and what you're going to find in your in context resources are trusted reference top periodicals videos images

audio primary sources, creative works, and statistics just to name a few of those premium resources you're going to find subjects that are studied, or topics frequently study topics to support curriculum

standards, history and world cultures, Science and Health and Literature and the arts are just a few, and then 2 enhanced teaching and learning.

We have Google Microsoft integration. We also have unlimited print, download and email available.

And then you also have the feature or the tool, highlights and notes, which is a great tool to annotate information or content available within the resources.

Annotation is just one tool claim evidence and reasoning.

Our science teachers use it, for I had an English teacher share with me.

They utilize the tool to show parts of speech. So all different ideas that you have available

Another resource is gale literature litfiner.

I talked about this briefly. I just want to really dive in, and so you can understand the sheer amount of information that you have available here over a 130,000 poems, and we have over 650,000 poetry

citations. We have short stories and novels, 4,000 essays, 2,000 speeches.

We also have plays available. so over 1,300 plays available, and so much more.

Within this resource I had mentioned. ha! High School Addition.

Just so, you fully understand. It is available for middle school and high school students.

It really provides access to those magazines, journals, newspapers, and also there is some reference content in there.

But remember I can't stress this enough it's a periodical resource.

So it has more of that periodical content, health and wellness again, full range of content on health related issues from current disease and disorder, information to alternative medical practices.

So we do have alternative medicine within this resource.

The and lastly, is echo one file Again, This is more of that database that has the peer reviewed scholarly journals and periodicals.

And again, this is across all academic disciplines so Now I get to share with you how you can search or browse.

We're going to explore content and view and share those results.

A few tools that I want you to keep in mind as I am working through the resources, and I am going to share with you that these tools and features are shared across all of your gale. resources.

So if your students learn it in one resource they're going to have it available in all of their guale resources, so it makes it very simple for them to jump from from one gale product to another, and one of the or the ability to share content

using the get link tool. You also have the ability to share content directly into Google classroom.

You can send content to Google Drive or Microsoft one drive.

You also have the email or download options available. We have tools to support accessibility.

Those tools are transferred font size. the Listen button which turns text to speech, and then display options where you can change the font and the color behind the text that's on the screen.

To encourage analysis. We have highlights and notes, highlights, notes is one of my favorite tools.

It does promote that deeper learning. you can color code.

You can mark up a document and then send it to your Google driver, Microsoft.

One drive it's great for annotation and a variety of ways to pull out information for papers and projects that students are working on to develop those research skills or to continue to develop those research skills.

So hopefully at the high school level. they've been doing some research for a couple of years.

Already we have some great search options such as topic page or I'm: Sorry topic finder topic pages is a curated collection of information, and that topic pages are found in your in context resources.

So it's curated it's hand selected our editors are pulling information in there, so you'll find some featured articles or featured documents available.

I'll talk to you a little bit more about that on those topic pages, but it's a curated collection of information based on curriculum standards.

We look at usage we hear from you all what's being studied in your buildings, and that all helps our content editors to create those topic.

Pages topic finder is a visual representation of your search results.

It's also an interactive tool so it's a great search option.

And then, of course, we have the citation tool available. All of your content within the resources has a citation already at attached to it.

You can change that format of that citation if You're getting ready to send that document to say Google drive.

You can change that format we are. We do have Mla.

Ninth edition. We have Apa, Chicago and Harvard all available, but we also have the citation tool. separate, too.

If you just need the citation and i'll model that for you today, Leslie, I want to mention if you are using a learning management system, and you want to embed or link content within that learning management system 2 examples are

canvas and schoology. You have that ability that is an option.

That is available. We are integrated with learning management. systems here's, screenshots of embedding, an article or embedding multimedia, and to get this started, you do need to reach out to your customer success manager they

work closely with your tech folks whomever's in charge of your learning management system in your building.

They can help with what is needed from Gale to get your resources set up within those learning management systems.

Okay, and remember, at the end I will provide you with your customer success.

Managers contact information. Alright, So I did see a question come through.

Do you have a link to your presentation? What I can do.

Say Sarah is, I can add, my powerpoint to the follow-up email.

I'll just add a link there, so that you can access the Powerpoint and take a look at it.

If you'd like to thanks for asking alright, so with that let's jump into our first resource, and that is galing context.

High school, and I want to share with you a few things let's first take a look at this home, Page, and what you're going to find here.

You do have the ability to sign in to Google or Microsoft as soon as you sit down.

So you can see in this top Banner the nice thing is is if I sign in to Google and i'm set up as a teacher, it automatically signs me into Google classroom.

I also have the ability to translate the navigational tools.

So here in the contextual toolbar, the advanced search basics search.

So those tools. if I want to translate those I have the ability to do that, and I have over 34 languages available again.

That'll just translate my navigational tools to make it easier for me to work through the resource.

We also have the ability to translate the documents, but you have to be at the document level to translate them, and I will show that to you here, as we work through the resource.

Few other things I want to share with you is you have these, of course, basic and advanced search are over here on the left-hand side, very intuitive.

A basic search. mostly at the high school level. Almost a 100% of our high schoolers are doing searching, basic search or advanced search.

But we do have some that are that like to point and click and jump into our topic.

Pages, but the majority of our students are according to our analytics are accessing, and they're they have done a search, even if it's a on a Amazon.

They've done a search at some point in their their high school career.

So they're a little bit more comfortable with using that basic search to find exactly what they're looking for.

We do have topics of interest scrolling here on the homepage, and these change once a month, and then below.

We have all of these subject categories. So, for example, biography, we happen to have a 174 topic pages related to that subject.

We just show the top 3 here, and you can see all the different subject categories that we have available.

We have over a 1,000 topic pages available within this resource.

And again, remember topic pages are a curated collection of information based on a certain topic.

We look at curriculum standards, units of study.

We hear feedback from you all we look at usage and That's how our content editors create all of these great topic pages.

I also want to point out you do have curriculum standards and educator resources at the bottom. So curriculum standards, if you need to search by standard either State or national, you can go through into curriculum.

standards, and you can facilitate or find content related to a standard.

It's very straightforward. you just need to figure out if you want a national standard like the Ngss standards.

Or if you would like your state standards, and find your just drill down, find your information.

It's just really clicking along the way and then on the right hand side.

You'll have the option to see click into all the resources that we have available related to that curriculum standard educator resources is going to provide you with some training materials that you have available and also there's some student

activities documents available here for students like there's a graphic organizer, for example.

So we have that type of information in those educator resources well let's focus on the content and the tools today.

So if from the homepage, if I wanted to go into history I could.

Oh! and it signed me up

Okay, if I go into history. I can see all of the topics related to, or all of the topic pages related to history. They're alphabetical.

The. And this is what we have organized underneath the topic of history.

If I wanted to switch from history to let's say government. I can very easily do that.

I don't Have to go back to that homepage I can just quickly use that dropdown menu and jump back or jump to another subject.

Category. Now, if I'm looking for a topic page and like I said, a lot of our high schoolers will use the basic search, and I wanted information on the Civil War, I can, when I start typing in that term search assist does pop

up, and all of these terms at the top of my list here that are bolded.

All have topic pages. So when I see that it's bolded, that means that I do have a topic page available, I'm going to select civil war American.

This will take me to my topic. Page Now at this point if i'm doing a unit of study on civil war.

I have my text, my textbook, my information there, but I want to supplement that information with what I have from my library.

I can do that. and this is a that is a great way to utilize this content to It's not just for research.

It's not just for projects it's also available to supplement what students are learning in the classroom.

It's there to support curriculum and a way that I can do that.

I can share this with my students is I can use the git link tool.

So even from this topic, Page, if I wanted to share this entire topic page with my students and have them do some exploration.

Maybe I have them looking for primary sources or images.

I can do that I can use the git link tool.

It provides a persistent Url back to this exact spot within the resource.

I can also go into Google classroom and pull this topic page into Google classroom.

So let me know if you'd like to see that at all again.

Very fairly intuitive information. but if you're using Google classroom like me to model it for you.

I'd be happy to do So i'm just never sure how many Google classroom folks we have on the line Alright, looking down the page.

We have content types available here in the center of the page and you can see we have academic journals, but we have reference documents.

There's some multimedia video audio we have images available.

Some critical essays, creative works, a plot summary. If we have any safe vetted websites, they would be here, too, and I can quickly jump to any of these by clicking on them.

So if I wanted to click, go to creative works can just click creative works, and it'll take me into all of that content if I wanted to scroll down the page.

I can do that, because what I want to share with you is at the very bottom of this page is if we have any related topic pages, they're going to be listed at the bottom.

So this allows additional exploration of these topics and connections to this topic also.

Okay, So we talked about topic pages. We talked about the get link tool.

Let me share with you the image and essay overview.

This is also a really great place to get started you're going to find here.

This one happens to have the text feature of critical thinking questions we've been adding, We started late 2,017 in our. If you see things published by Gale I find a lot of it in our essay

overviews in the reference content type and sometimes in our biography content type where we have documents that are that we published.

And we've added critical thinking questions that's something that teachers were asking for, so I could very simply assign this to my students.

If I wanted to push it to my Google classroom, I could, or if I wanted to grab a link, a grab, a link and share it with my students and create an assignment to go with it.

I have that option available. So consider that as another way to support what's being taught in the classroom is assigning a close reading that has a critical thinking questions already built.

In what I also love about our essay overviews is the more like this panel.

So you have the ability to jump to additional content related to the article that we are on.

Let's go back out. Oh, and this one too, if you can see on the upper left-hand side.

You can change the lexile, so I can jump from a 1,530 down to an 1110, and it adjusts that text for me to that lower lexile measure.

Speaking of black cells, let's go back. to that homepage and let's go into the content types because I want to show you how to filter content down before I do I do also want to point out that you have the ability to

search within your results, and this will just search within the information on this page.

So let's go into reference. and I want to talk to you about filtering your results down.

So once I click into any of the content types, and I do have that featured content featured.

Content is hand selected information by our content editors.

We always have that box in our in context resources you're going to see it on the topic.

Pages that's also the another great place for students to get started on their on the research or projects, or any reading is that featured content section.

But we jumped into reference, and I have this filter.

Your results. section here on the right hand side, where I can filter by publication date.

I can choose a subject I can choose a document type when we're talking about anything related to history.

I absolutely love the document types, because you're going to find in here letters and memoirs and that type of information available publication titles.

If there's certain publication, Titles and I can multi-select any of those I was talking about lexile measure, and that Switz led led me to this point where I can filter by lexile measure I can

multi-select, or we have content level, so content level.

You can see are related to lexile measures ones and twos are elementary.

You're not going to find much of this you may find them a couple level twos in here, but that's going to be in your elementary resources.

You may find some level three's within this resource level 3 is generally middle school, and you have another resource that helps support middle schoolers.

But you'll primarily find level fours and fives, which is high school all the way to undergrad.

But let's say I did. Maybe I had students that needed a little bit lower reading level.

I can try and filter by level 3 and 4. I can apply that.

And it will filter down all of my content at once.

So it removed all those level 5 so I don't have to worry about those being in my search results.

But you can see here I happen to have a content level 3 here's a level 4 right in my reference documents.

But even though i'm in reference I applied that filter and it applied it to everything. So at this point I could use the git link tool or pull this into Google classroom and help support my students it's great for

differentiating instruction, too. or if I wanted to drill down even further, I can use the search within and put in a term and drill down even further to find exactly what i'm looking for topic finder, is here I am going to

talk about Topic finder in your next resource, but I do want to point out that it always lives below your filter box, and you can pull in.

If I were to start topic finder now, it would pull in these results that I filtered down to a content level 3 and 4 on the subject of civil war.

So that's, if I start it now it also lives under advanced search.

So in every single of your every single one of your gale resources. If you're looking for topic, finder, tell your students that they can go to advanced search, and it will be there. they will always find it in advanced search and they can

kick off their search, using tactic finder if that's what they choose to do.

Alright. so let me share with you i'm going to go into the next resource.

If There's no questions on this one there are a couple hidden gems that I want to point out in the video, I noticed that Romeo and Juliet was mentioned.

So i'm just going to show this real quick it made me Think of Why is it signing me out so much sorry about that?

I don't know. Sometimes zoom affects my resources.

Okay, There we go, hopefully. It Won't sign me out again But you're talking about Romeo and Juliet. the Here's a hidden gem.

I just want to share real quick with you in the advanced search in the fields.

Here we are looking at Keyword. I'm gonna show you a publisher that provides you with the audio files, and also the line notes for shakes.

We have Shakespeare. We have poetry available in your in context, and it's available in middle school and high school.

So what I want to do is filter by publication title.

I am going to put in the term exploring because this is the publisher.

So you can see exploring poetry short stories novels and Shakespeare.

I'm going to choose Shakespeare since we're talking about Romeo and Juliet in the video and click search, and it takes me to that content specifically from this publisher.

So this is just the content from exploring Shakespeare.

But what I want to point out is, you have creative works and audio files.

The creative works have these great line notes. So you have the line, and then you have the line notes available in the creative works, and the audio files are actually readings of. Let me go back out to those results the readings of the

scenes, the same with the poetry, and these were a local drama department from a university.

Was we hired to do these readings, so you can hear the you can read the text using the creative works.

And then also hear the text being read aloud, or that scene being being performed through these audio files. hey?

So keep that in mind you could filter down by. Let me see if this we can do this real quick.

Romeo and Juliet, and there we go. We have the scenes available from Romeo and Juliet. okay.

So I encourage you to listen to those we don't have a lot of time.

So i'm gonna go into the next resource let's see?

A question came through. If the product narrows results by level in all the formats, what is it using as a guide?

It appeared that the level was based on Lexa level.

If so, how would that apply to a video So with the video it's looking at the transcript?

And that's a great question, and I I usually like to point that out.

But it does. It looks at the the transcript So that's one thing to be cautious of If you are filtering down by your content levels.

Videos can be watched at any level. Students can listen to that information and watch right.

It doesn't necessarily have to be at the reading level so keep that in mind.

If you are filtering by the content level or lexile measure that you are also going to be. That that transcript is going to be looked at.

That is what is using that's what is applying to and That's why those videos were filtered out of that content.

Okay, so keep that mind. If you wanna show all the videos, then share a link you could.

You can easily click into. Let me remove this out of the way.

You could easily click into like this audio file and grab a link to it.

Or the video file and use the get link tool and provide that to your students, and then you can filter it down.

If you wanted to go that path to sure, everything with them before you filter that content by content level.

Okay, all right, let's go into lit finder and I do have let's see.

I'm going to go through the product Menu in the upper left-hand corner of all of your gale resources.

You have this library, Menu

Please. Why is going on with my mouse Here, There we go, a view gale, product, menu, and it will take you to all of your resources.

So this is a quick way to jump between your resources. I'm going to go into lit finder which i'm going to find under literature, and what I want to share with you here.

It looks different. We don't have topic pages because this is not an in context product.

This is a gale literature, product but we do have topic finder and term frequency on the homepage.

So again, remember topic. finder always lives under advanced search.

But in our literature resources and our one file. resources. we have the ability to put it on the homepage, because we don't have all of those topic pages here within these resources.

So when i'm in lit Finder I'm sticking with the idea of Shakespeare, I can do a search in topic finder, I can do a basic search on Shakespeare I can do a work search as you can see in

the contextual toolbar here on Shakespeare.

If I wanted to I also have person search so i'm looking for a certain author that's a great way to use person search.

I'm going to use topic. Finder because I want to point that out and share with you how that works.

And I'm going to type in shakespeare topic finder again.

It's a visual representation of your search results and it's interactive.

The deeper the the deeper the color, the larger the tile, the more information we have under that subject heading.

So you can see we have a quite a bit on love so let's click into it, and I can continue to drill down.

We have If I want song, and lyrics or maybe I want poetries or plays, let's look at place on the right hand side, it's changing the content.

It's drilling down it's an interactive tool that students can use.

I also really like it, because for students, it may trigger some keywords that they hadn't necessarily thought about when they were doing their research, because now they can see it, it's a very visual it's interactive.

So it really helps them find more content and also some ideas that maybe they hadn't necessarily thought about.

So I did pick something pretty bakey sick that they would probably think about, but I clicked into play, and on the right hand side I have 7 documents of available.

If I wanted to reset that, I simply click this reset button at the bottom.

I also have the ability to view this in the wheel format if you prefer that most students prefer the tile.

So that's usually why we share that but if I did click into this tile, and then I clicked on again play, and I clicked on.

Let's stick with the theme of romeo and Juliet. Here I have.

This is the document type you can see. Here we have the play

And this is a selection from Romeo and Juliet.

So you have to do a little bit of clicking to get through this when you work through the place. so keep that in mind.

This is an excerpt poem excerpt it says so as I keep clicking.

It's taken me through that information if I were to do a search on say, let's do, Robert frost

So when I do a basic search it looks different than topic finder.

Our basic search is going to pull back all my information primary sources and literary works by biographies topic and work overviews, multimedia.

You're going to find all. this content available i'm gonna choose the first one, and you can see here I have a poem, and this is by Robert Frost, and I also have all of my tools to support accessibility.

Available. I have the ability to translate the text into over 40 languages.

I have the ability to decrease or increase that font size.

I can also change the display. options now display options.

Give me the ability to change the color behind the text, Change the font, increase the line, letter and word spacing.

And now I have the text in a format that I can read.

The nice thing is is once I make these selections as soon as I access a document, that it does stick with me throughout the session.

So if I close out of this session, this of course, would be cleared.

But until then, no matter how many documents I click into these display options will stick with me.

So that's really helpful tool to have I wanna go back to my default settings.

I can do that, and click done. I can also listen to the text being read aloud to me.

So if I use that. listen feature, it will read the texts allowed.

Now, if i've translated the text and then click the listen, Button.

So we're at 41 languages to translate the text into.

We are at 23 languages to listen. Actually, I just heard 24 yesterday, so it could be 24 now.

But we are, and We're constantly working to add more so your most popular translation languages you're going to find in the list.

So I translate to Spanish. I listen. it also am listening to it in Spanish.

I have my quicksand options, Google, Microsoft Download email or print below my document.

I have my source citation here. I can change the format.

As I mentioned before, I can choose, where i'd like to export it to, if I want to keep this entire document.

But I need it to be an apa format. And then I want to send this document to my Google.

Drive my contextual toolbar does stick with me I don't have to scroll all the way back up to the top of the article, especially if I'm on a longer article I can click the paper airplane the sun 2

option and choose Google one driver email. I can also download or print the source citation.

Here is just the citation. So this is separate. If I just needed that citation, and I needed it in back to Mla.

Ninth edition, and I wanted to export it to noodle tools.

I can do that here. But the nice thing is is if i'm sending this document to Google Microsoft dot downloading or emailing or printing this, that the source citation and whatever format I've selected will

go with my document. All right. One other tool I want to share with you within this resource.

And then I just want to highlight some notes. I just want to go into a few others just to show you the home pages.

So you have an understanding of what's available so when I highlight a chunk of text Choose the color can add my notes.

Maybe I want to quote this in a paper and save it.

I can send my best practices to always send this entire document to either Google Microsoft email download or print.

So you have the marked up document, but my highlights and Notes section is being built out.

So let me go back to my results. i'm gonna click into a biography.

This time on Robert Frost I'm going to select some information here, went to Lawrence High School.

He also taught in Michigan, where I live at the University of Michigan.

Okay, and this is maybe some facts about Robert frost I'm.

Just taking some notes if there's if i'm struggling with a term.

I can highlight that term click the define Button and It takes me to a page out of the Webster's dictionary.

But again, best practice. send this to my i would send it to my Google Drive, and it would land in a folder titled lit finder, because i'm in galelet finder.

I am going to look at my highlights and notes So if I in the upper right, I can see I have one, and that because of the document i'm actually have more than one in there I view.

All highlights and notes. it'll take me to this page where I have my first document and my second document.

These are my digital notes. I can edit these notes. I have my bibliography attached.

I can change the format of that bibliography.

I can label what is blue and what is green, and it creates a nice legend for me over here on the left hand side.

Once I label them, I can grab my source citations here.

So this is going There's my work cited page it's done So that's a great tool to show students, too.

I can just send these digital notes to Google Microsoft email download or print.

Now I always say best practice. Send the entire marked up document to your Google Drive or Microsoft one driver wherever you want to save that information.

Because if I forget to come in here and grab my digital notes, it will be lost.

So if I close my browser and don't come in here beforehand, i'll lose that information.

So that's Why, I always say if you've marked up a document.

Send it save it somewhere. So you have that entire document with what you've highlighted, and the notes you've taken just in case you forget to come in here and do this last step alright, so that's highlights

and notes. let's talk about Gale health and wellness as we are coming towards the end of our session.

Now health and Wellness actually lives under this more button and I want to point out this resource when some of the information that you're going to find here.

So you can see it looks similar to our in context resources where you have topics of interest, and you have some topic pages below.

But I want to point out there's a great mental health section that we've been adding to a lot over the last couple years, and you're going to see new information like monkey packs is here, and available so maybe in

your science classes or health classes you are doing this types these types of studies you're going to find that information already here and available for students.

But if I was looking for, maybe i'm sharing this with my counselors and I want them to be aware of what all we have available to support students, and maybe there's some students, you know, testing anxiety that's a

thing and it's it's difficult for students so maybe that anxiety.

I want to share this topic page with my counselors so that they're aware that, hey?

You have this scale, health and wellness resource. Why not utilize some of the information here and share it with students or with parents, can be really helpful for parents, too.

So you have these types of tapic pages. available it's also fantastic support for your health classes or students that maybe are studying outside of health classes.

Maybe you have students that are going into nursing, or you have Cna students, or you have some kind of vocational program or cte programs.

This is a great resource to help support those students, too, and great source of information that you have available.

There may even be some information that can support what's being studied in your psychology classes here available within this resource.

So you can see it looks very similar to our in context resources where we have some topic pages available.

There's great video content and images audio files and the list goes on, even academic journals.

One. I was going to do a study, too, on obsessive, compulsive disorder, and you can see this one, does not.

It looks like it has. so in health, and wellness is a little different.

Sometimes we have the topic page, but not the image in essay overview.

So we have that curated collection of information but we don't have the image in essay overview.

This is one of those situations and that's in just within health and wellness where you're going to find a little bit of both in context has all the topic pages in every topic page has an image in essay overview but

I did want to point out the difference between the 2. There, let me know if there are any questions.
