New Gale Feature: Highlights and Notes

Psst! Wanna know a secret?! Gale has a new tool. Introducing…Highlights and Notes!

For the low price of nada, users can now choose from six sherbet-licious colors (yummm!!!) to highlight article passages (oohhh!!!) and add notes about what they read (aahhh!!!).

To learn how it works, see the attachment.

Want some extra deets?

  • Highlights and Notes is available in Kids InfoBits, GVRL, In Context products, and InfoTrac products.
  • Highlighted sections and notes will go away when the Gale session is closed. (But don’t fear because you can print, email, or download your stuff before closing the session!)
  • Teachers can project a Gale article and use the new feature to model note taking and close reading skills, students can start identifying information that will help them answer their inquiry questions, and so…much…more.


Help spread the word!

Ciao,
Jen
