Secondary GLAD®


The Secondary OCDE Project GLAD® pilot model attends to the complex needs of middle school and high school emergent bilingual students, some of which may be entering into secondary settings as long-term English learners (LTELs), newcomers or refugee students.  Secondary practitioners need to attend to all students' needs while adhering to unique scheduling factors.  Interweaving the salient language acquisition strategies identified within the OCDE Project GLAD® model and targeting the rigorous, accelerated demands of content comprehension, this model is designed to accelerate language proficiency while attending to the whole child and identity of a secondary student.
