For High School/Middle School learners:
Use GALE Databases with Google Classroom and tools!
When you have a paper, project, or presentation to complete, the hardest part is figuring out where to start. Gale OneFile: High School Edition simplifies your search for information by bringing together hundreds of thousands of images, videos, and audio selections into one easy-to-use database. While online browsers can serve up unreliable or incomplete results, this database lets you explore vetted primary sources, biographies, critical essays, and other materials in many formats — giving you deeper context to high-interest topics.
As a middle schooler, research can be challenging, right? You’re not a research guru just yet, and online searches on their own can lead you to unreliable content. Thankfully, Gale In Context: Middle School integrates citable content from magazines, newspapers, videos, and primary sources into an easy-to-navigate database developed with you in mind. Dive into science, social studies, history, literature, and more from National Geographic, Scholastic, NPR, NASA, and other citable sources.
This tutorial shows you how to use Highlights and Notes to keep track of key concepts and document sections within many Gale resources.
This tutorial shows you how to download results or use the Send to tool to add documents to Google Drive or from many Gale resources.
