Below is a list of Professional Development services and programs DLENM provides.


Contextualized Learning for Access, Validation, Equity and Success (CLAVES™) is a framework that provides educational stakeholders with the professional learning needed to create an environment of differentiated, inclusive, and validating instruction in schools that serve culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) students, with specific emphasis on English Learners (ELs).


Achievement Inspired Mathematics for Scaffolding Student Success (AIM4S3) is a framework of instructional components that shelter 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 CCSSM implementation and can be used with any mathematics curriculum program or curriculum for students in kindergarten through middle school. This model provides the strategies to allow students to own the language, to be able to access the knowledge, and to be fluent in demonstrating their understanding. It also deepens teachers’ mathematical understanding and curricular knowledge.

Project GLAD® Workshops and Training

Project GLAD® is a model of professional development dedicated to building academic language and literacy for all students, especially second language learners. The Guided Language Academic 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.

Literacy Squared®

Literacy Squared® is a comprehensive biliteracy program that has been designed to accelerate the development of biliteracy in Spanish-English speaking children attending schools in the U.S. The Literacy Squared model is both research-based and research-tested. Its conceptual framework draws on research positing that a dire need exists for a new theory about literacy instruction for bilingual children (Bernhardt, 2003; Grant & Wong, 2003), and that second language literacy acquisition is greatly enhanced if learners are literate in their first language (August & Shanahan, 2006).
