What can you tweak to your lesson plan to make input more comprehensible? More visuals? Process with vocabulary? Chunk up the material in digestible bites? OCDE Project GLAD® input charts helps us do it all!
Language, science and total physical response unite! An OCDE Project GLAD® Chant helps review all these concepts in one!
Way back in 1993, I attended my first OCDE Project GLAD® training and was introduced to interactive journaling. I love reading what my students have to say, even if it’s scary sometimes. So thankful for these interactions.
Awesome, awesome presentation!!
This was an excellent training. It allowed us not only to have the classroom instruction but also see the methods at work in the actual classroom and have the time to develop some of the materials we will be able to use in our own rooms.
