The well-known Gale in Context collection of resources has expanded to include a resource specially created for 11 to 14 year old pupils. This brings together authoritative content in a variety of formats onto one modern, pupil friendly interface.

Student Tested, Librarian Approved. Gale's Research in Context is designed to bridge the gap between the Kids InfoBits resource for elementary school students and the subject-specific Gale In Context family, developed primarily for high school and undergraduate students.
11 to 14 year old students will benefit from an interface that delivers the highly visual design and navigation preferred by younger users combined with authoritative content and a user-focused tool set to support assignments and coursework.

The Research in Context is designed to support the developing information and digital literacy skills of the average secondary school student, drawing from:

User testing with 11 to 14 year old students
Librarian and teacher feedback
An extensive body of user experience research and usage data gathered over years of developing primary and secondary school resources
Analysis of school curriculum standards and popular lesson plans

The resource's name, content, and design are also ideal for younger students who are ready for more advanced research as well as school students who are still developing their key skills.

Categories cover the most-studied topics: Cultures, government, people, U.S. history, sports, world history, geography, literature, science, and social issue, including nearly 300 topic pages and overviews on the subjects and social issues most studied by and relevant to middle school users as well as science experiments and contextual information for key works and documents
Engaging reference, periodical, and multimedia content: Books, images, biographies, audio, video, magazines, newspapers, creative works, primary sources, and more
Authoritative information sources: Proprietary Gale, UXL, and Lucent titles and content from leading sources like National Geographic, Scholastic, NPR, NASA, AP Video News, and others
Alignment to standards: Contains national curriculum standards for 11 to 14 year pupils in language arts, social studies, and science
New content written explicitly for middle schools: Topic overviews on the subjects and social issues most studied by and relevant to middle school users as well as science experiments and contextual information for key works and documents

Features Optimized to Support the Student Workflow:

Today's researchers demand resources that are simple to navigate and quick to deliver the answers they need: when, where, and how they want them. Research In Context supports the student workflow with features like:
A responsive design, optimized for any device and screen size
