OCDE Project GLAD®

Guided Language Acquisition Design

What is OCDE Project GLAD® Training?

OCDE Project GLAD® is a curricular model of professional development dedicated to building academic language and literacy for all students, especially English learners. 

It is a 6 or 7-day training that gives teachers practical strategies for integrating their content with English language development. It is appropriate for teachers in any grade level and all content subject areas. GLAD® is not what you teach; rather, it's HOW you teach in order to reach all your leaners, regardless of language profiiency level.
