Gale, part of Cengage Learning, has announced Classroom in Context (CliC <www.cengagesites.com/Literature/66/CLiC/>), a curriculum-based family of resources designed to supplement textbooks and enhance learning with authoritative, media-rich content from Gale's In Context product suite.
Evolved from Gale's successful custom digital curriculum alignment program, in which Gale worked directly with schools to create online learning portals, CLiC is designed to increase student engagement, provide teachers with current digital content, and help school administrators make the transition to digital curriculum. Delivered through a unique portal experience, CLiC also has the flexibility to be easily integrated into an existing Learning Management System (LMS), the announcement states. Since CLiC can be used in the classroom, students can follow along and conduct research as they go, which also helps librarians accelerate usage of library products.
CLiC resources are aligned to universal themes, units and topics found in national and state curriculum frameworks and many nationally-adopted textbooks. The national curriculum framework provides core learning goals, including real world skills and knowledge that students need to be successful after they graduate. By utilizing CLiC, administrators, librarians and teachers can ensure they're preparing students for college and real world challenges. With options to customize content selection and add new content, CLiC is a powerful and versatile tool for any classroom, according to the announcement.
The CLiC product suite currently includes high school Biology, Chemistry, U.S History and World History, with Earth Science and Government underway. Customers that purchase CLiC resources are provided with unlimited school-wide and remote access anytime, anywhere with an internet connection.
