GLAD Training

Parents- BOMUSD selected to host GLAD training for El Dorado County! September 15-18th and 22nd -25th Northside will host GLAD training for the county. Two classroom’s have been selected to participate. Students will receive direct instruction in their grade level curriculum by GLAD guest teachers during the morning hours.


Project GLAD is a model of professional development in the area of language acquisition and literacy. The strategies and model promote English language acquisition, academic achievement, and cross-cultural skills. Tied to the Common Core State Standards and State Standards, the model trains teachers to provide access to core curriculum using local district guidelines and curriculum.

Project GLAD is an instructional model with clear, practical strategies promoting positive, effective interactions among students and between teachers and students. Project GLAD develops metacognitive use of high level, academic language and literacy.

The second part of the training is a demonstration session in the classroom where the model is demonstrated with students.

Project GLAD training results in teachers’ renewed commitment to high expectations and high standards for all students. The results for students have been continued gains in standardized test scores, as well as renewed involvement in a classroom that is, not only student-centered, but fosters a sense of identity and voice.


 It was the recommended K-8 project by the California State Superintendent of Schools for teachers of English learners. It is also highlighted as a California Department of Education “Best Practices” program for Title III professional development funding.
