Gale Distributing IMAGO SEL Curriculum
Library provider Gale is partnering with IMAGO, another education technology company, to distribute a set of online services for K-12. Gale Presents: IMAGO, as it’s called, provides video-based social and emotional learning (SEL) and career readiness. The curriculum is intended to be used with students in grades 5-12.
In the platform, students view modules or lessons on SEL topics and respond to study guide questions. The lessons cover five aspects encompassed in the CASEL SEL framework — self-awareness, relationship skills, social awareness, responsible or ethical decision making and self-management — with the addition of global awareness. Other topics include career exploration and life and work skills.
The lessons come with facilitator guides with activities, questions and additional resources that a teacher needs to teach lessons in class or remotely. Lessons can be self-study or facilitator-led, depending on teacher preference. Learner responses to these study guide questions provide insight into their perspectives and current skills as well as the impact of lessons on the learners.
