Invitation: GLAD Teacher Visits

Thursday, February 11, 2016: AM & PM Sessions

Please join us!

Teachers trained in GLAD are making content accessible and comprehensible to ELLs through the use of GLAD strategies. You are invited to see firsthand a snapshot of these strategies in practice.

What is GLAD? Guided Language Acquisition Design (GLAD) is a model of professional development in language acquisition and literacy. It includes a unique two-part training model that is teacher-focused and extremely effective. To be certified as a GLAD practitioner, teachers participate in a 6-day intensive training.

These teachers have worked diligently since 2014 to improve how they address the unique needs of ELLs. Please take note of the way their students respond to this approach.
