Professional Development

DLeNM offers a variety of high quality program and professional development opportunities. It is part of DLeNM's mission, through these opportunities, to build instructional leadership capacity and support individual programs in the development of the on-site expertise needed to fully ensure program implementation success. With this end in mind, DLeNM is always looking to collaborate with individual schools and/or school districts to plan school and/or district hosted events. These events would be planned in addition to a regular calendar of events that DLeNM maintains. For questions regarding DLeNM's professional development fees, please contact our office at 505 243-0648

La Siembra (New Program Planning Retreat) Print E-mail

La Siembra is a retreat designed to facilitate planning, preparation, and design of new dual language programs.

The retreat consists of two days of intensive training and planning for key stakeholder groups from schools that are planning to start a dual language program in the next two years. The work of the groups is organized around the Dual Language Program Planner: A Guide for Designing and Implementing Dual Language Programs. The ultimate goal is for each school team to leave with a clear idea of what is needed to provide a high quality dual language program at their school.

El Enriquecer (Program Self Evaluation Retreat) Print E-mail

El Enriquecer is a retreat for existing programs to self-evaluate,identify areas of improvement, and develop action plans to strengthen and improve program implementation. The retreat consists of two days of intensive training and planning for school teams based on using the Guiding Principles for Dual Language Education, available at: http://www.cal.org/twi/guidingprinciples.htm,as a program self-assessment tool.

The goal is for school teams to not only leave El Enriquecer with a clear idea of where their program is with respect to best practices and the next steps they need to take to improve program quality, but also to have myriad concrete examples and tools for immediate use back at the school site.

Achievement Inspired Mathematics for Scaffolding Student Success Print E-mail

Achievement Inspired Mathematics for Scaffolding Student Success (AIM4S3) provides a framework of instructional components that shelters mathematics content to make it comprehensible and accessible to all students, with a specific focus on English learners (ELs) and academic language learners (ALLs). AIM4S3 supports teachers in planning and implementing the Common Core State Standards. It can be utilized with any mathematics program and is applicable in kindergarten through high school, as well as post-secondary school. This model provides the strategies to allow students to own the language of mathematics, to access the knowledge, and to be fluent in demonstrating their understanding. It also deepens teachers’ mathematical understanding and curricular knowledge.

 

The three-day AIM4S3 training and workshop includes a model overview of the Key Instructional Principles and Components as well as supporting data, classroom demonstrations, and collaborative planning time. Follow-up training is tailored to the needs of the school and the individual teachers.

What is Project GLAD®? (GLAD = Guided Language Acquisition Design)

Project GLAD® is owned and operated by the Orange County Department of Education, which is the National Training Center (NTC) for Project GLAD®. Dual Language Education of New Mexico (DLeNM) has a Memorandum of Understanding with the NTC to provide Project GLAD® Tier I Certification Training to districts/schools/educational institutions in New Mexico and other states that DLeNM works with that have dual language programs.
Project GLAD® is a model of professional development dedicated to building academic language and literacy for all students, especially English 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 model enhances teachers’ design and delivery of standards-based instruction through an approach that integrates content and language teaching and learning. Project GLAD® classrooms promote an environment that respects and honors each child’s voice, personal life experience, beliefs and values their culture.
Project GLAD® has been recognized as a model reform program by the California Department of Education.  Project GLAD® is firmly rooted in research and has been field tested for the past 18 years.

DLeNMProject GLAD® Training Elements

Element I: Project GLAD® Leadership Ensemble ($3500 for on site*at you institution, or $1,000 for a team of 3-6 to attend Albuquerque trainings (next training – February 15, 2015)
This one-day workshop is a prerequisite for all developing agencies prior to scheduling participants for Tier I training. The purpose of this workshop is to support educational agencies with the development, implementation and sustainability of the Project GLAD® instructional model.

Outcomes: Participants will learn how Project GLAD® is an instructional model designed to support diverse populations of learners, develop clear understandings about the instructional needs of English learners, discover the essential components of successful implementation and sustainability of the Project GLAD® Model and develop and design an initial implementation plan that aligns district resources and professional development needs with student learning outcomes.
 
Element II: Project GLAD® Tier I Training($1053 per participant, includes the cost of training materials*)
1.      2-Day Research & Theory Workshop: Participants are introduced to the theoretical and research base of the model, engage in dialogue around current pedagogy and learn strategies that promote academic discourse and literacy success for all students.

2.      4-5 Day Classroom Demonstration: Participants observe a certified trainer deliver 4 to 5 days of Project GLAD® classroom instruction with a single classroom of students while another trainer coaches them as to what they are seeing.  Participants spend the afternoon sessions debriefing, collaborating, planning and preparing for immediate implementation.

Element III: Project GLAD® Follow-up training ($1750 per day for one trainer*)
·        A DLeNM Project GLAD® trainer comes to the school to work with teachers individually or in a group to deepen their implementation of Project GLAD®. Follow-up training requires pre-planning with leadership to tailor the follow-up to the school’s and teacher’s needs.
 
Supports for Trained Teachers:  Project GLAD® trained teachers receive access to a variety of free resources: online professional learning communities facilitated by Orange County Department of Education's National Training Center staff, our website, www.ntcprojectglad.com, with over 240 standards-based units and resources, and ongoing communication with Project GLAD® trainers.  

Implementation:  The highest levels of implementation occur in schools where administrators support, monitor and celebrate teacher implementation, provide collaborative planning and reflection opportunities and access to resources.  Developing Project GLAD® Agency Trainers is highly effective in supporting ongoing follow-up, training and support.  http://www.ocde.us/ProjectGLAD/Pages .

* For out of town trainings, DLeNM must add travel costs (lodging, travel and per diem).

The American Indian Language Policy Research and Teacher Training Center aims to serve as a local and national center of collaborative research that examines major policy issues affecting the survival and maintenance of American Indian language. The Center will also provide a venue for building an international dialogue about language issues that extend to other Indigenous languages of the Americas. Developing and providing Native language teacher training programs and technical assistance support for American Indian tribes engaged in language maintenance and preservation initiatives will be another key aspect of the Center's outreach and service.
