Get Trained in GLAD® Strategies This Summer
ACPS is offering two summer opportunities to get to know Project GLAD® if you are new to the model or if you are a practitioner wanting to refine your GLAD® practice.
Do you want a one-day introduction?
ACPS is hosting its first ever Project GLAD® Summer Institute this August.
Join us for a day of learning, collaborating, and fun all with Project GLAD®. There will be a variety of sessions offered so that you can choose what sounds right for you. Do you want to learn about how to create a sentence pattern chart or do you want to dive into a planning document created for Project GLAD® and Co-teaching? Maybe you want to participate in a discussion on how Project GLAD® and AVID have similar goals or plan lessons using GLAD® strategies with a trainer there to coach you along the way? There will be something for everyone at the Project GLAD® Summer Institute.
Project GLAD® incorporates strategies that align with best practices for English Learners (ELs). These strategies support teachers in how to scaffold the grade level curriculum for all students.
Currently, there are over 250 GLAD® trained teachers in ACPS with over 150 slated to participate next year. Six 6 schools are committed to using GLAD® strategies to reach and teach all academic language learners, 2 OCDE Project GLAD® certified trainers and 10 more Trainers in Training currently serving ACPS.
Feel like you need more than just a day?
The OCDE Project GLAD® model of professional learning includes a 2-day research and theory workshop and a 4-day classroom demonstration where teachers see all the GLAD® strategies in action with students. Project GLAD® strategies are broken down into the 6 component areas of Focus and Motivation, Input, Guided Oral Practice, Reading and Writing, Extended Activities and Assessment and Feedback. This research-based model is focused on providing ways for students to access grade-level academic content and language while engaging in a positive classroom environment where they are encouraged to take risks. That’s where the learning happens.
