Early Childhood GLAD®/Preschool GLAD®

GLAD® in Early Childhood Training Information

GLAD® in Early Childhood is about creating a rich environment of language, ideas, and concepts. While it is copyrighted as Preschool GLAD®, it is a great match for early childhood educators working in preschool, kindergarten, and 1st/2nd grades looking for ways for students to engage in learning at their entry points with multiple ways to respond.

This training includes one day of theory, research, and strategies to prepare teachers for the four-day classroom demonstration. Teachers see the strategies in action with students, plan their upcoming unit, and deepen their understanding of language development and the needs of language learners.
