Project GLAD® Workshops and Training

About Project GLAD®

Project GLAD® is a model of professional development dedicated to building academic language and literacy for all students, especially second language learners.  For over 20 years, Project GLAD® has provided exemplary training for educators both nationally and internationally resulting in students’ access to quality instruction and high-levels of success.  The Guided language Acquisition Design model enhances teachers’ design and delivery of standards-based instruction through an approach that integrates the development of content knowledge and skills with the acquisition of academic language. Project GLAD® classrooms promote an environment that respects and honors each child’s voice, personal life experience, beliefs and culture.

A Powerful Partnership

 

We are proud to share the partnership between Orange County Department of Education (OCDE) Project GLAD® National Training Center (NTC) and Dual Language Education of New Mexico (DLeNM).  OCDE Project GLAD® NTC is a highly valued partner with DLeNM, with a mutual commitment to service language learners academically, linguistically, socially and civically. Together, we engage in culturally and linguistically responsive practices that build multiliteracy and multiculturalism.

 

Per our Memorandum of Understanding, DLeNM facilitates the delivery of OCDE Project GLAD® trainings on behalf of the National Training Center. DLeNM values its relationship with the Project GLAD® National Training Center as a professional collaborator, supporting instruction in the dual language education classroom. The Project GLAD® training model combines research and theory with classroom demonstrations and teacher practice and planning time.  For more information on the trainings that are offered by DLeNM, please click on the links below.
