Gale Presents: Imago Provides Students Lessons on Social and Emotional Learning
In partnership with IMAGO, Gale rolled out a social and emotional learning (SEL), career readiness, and soft skills platform for 5th- to 12th-grade students. Gale Presents: Imago offers short videos and study guides to help students improve their emotional intelligence so they can thrive in their careers after graduation. Gale notes, “A CareerBuilder survey found that 71% of employers value emotional intelligence over IQ. Gale Presents: Imago will help schools shift to help students develop these critical skills and explore new paths that align with their interests and abilities to achieve their professional goals.”
Gale Presents: Imago’s key features include the following:
- Self-study or teacher/student-led lessons. Both can be delivered in-person or [by] distance learning.
- Turn-key lessons. Each SEL lesson [comes] complete with facilitator guides with activities, think ahead questions and additional content to facilitate a lesson.
- More than 225 [research]-based digital lessons covering career exploration, life skills (eye contact, body language, etc.), work skills and SEL.
- Family Wellness lessons that are free to the public on topics such as anger, loneliness and navigating grief.
