Correlate GALILEO Resources to the GPS and CCGPS

Did you know that several GALILEO resources have a tool to let you or your teachers choose a standard and then see what items in the database match that standard? EBSCO, Britannica, and SIRS all offer a tool to do this.

Encyclopædia Britannica

To see the curriculum tool in Britannica,
1) Log in to Encyclopædia Britannica
2) Go to the Teachers’ Resources section (tab at the top)
3) Scroll down to the orange Curriculum Standards button
4) Click the orange standards button to see the Britannica standards search
5) You will need to choose a grade level and subject as well as Georgia to see the Georgia standards (note that there is a link directly to the Common Core Standards on this page)

EBSCO

To see the curriculum standards tool in EBSCO,

1) Log in to Kids Search, Student Research Center, or History Reference Center
2) Go to the Curriculum Standards link in the Reference Shelf or Teacher Resources
3) You will need to select Georgia, or you can select Common Core in the State dropdown menu
4) Then, you will need to select the appropriate state standards, the subject, and the grade level
5) The EBSCO tool gives you sample searches to copy and paste into EBSCO to see items related to that standard

SIRS Discoverer

In see the curriculum standards tool in SIRS,

1) Log in to SIRS Discoverer
2) Go to Educator Resources (on the right or at the very bottom) or you can click the Common Core Correlations link on the home page
3) You can choose to see Common Core standards or you can choose your state
4) Then, choose the subject and click the GO button
5) Use the arrows to choose the standard that you want
6) Drill down into the standard until you see a “See resources” link – this will take you to topics in SIRS that match the standard
