Training Overview

The OCDE Project GLAD® model is a model of professional learning that imbeds the depth and understanding of the rationale behind best practices for language learning and development with practical applications in the classroom.

With the “D” in GLAD® representing “design” we use innovative design practices to ensure that lessons are designed to meet the needs of all students, most intently the needs of our language learners/ emergent bilingual students.

The “D” helps us to design lessons that allows for teaching and learning to come alive, for healthy learning environments to be cultivated and sustain both rigor and fun in the classroom-all while building language through content. 

Whether you choose a professional learning experience within a preschool setting, English, Spanish or secondary, this scope of sequence will be an imbedded part of the learning process.
