Research in Context

Gale’s Research in Context

The Gale Research Suite has been expanded to include a product specifically for middle school (grades 6-8) researchers. It provides the authoritative content that Gale is know for in a variety of formats on one modern, student friendly, and mobile-responsive interface.

Research in Context was created with a user interface to support the developing information and digital literacy skills of the average middle school student. To that end, Gale’s Research in Context is approachable for younger students who are ready for more advanced research, as well, as high school students who are still developing key skills (Gale, 2016).
