OCDE Project GLAD®
“Mini” GLAD® Unit Design for Today’s Classroom
Bigger is not always better. Come and learn how to design a GLAD® standard-based science, social studies or ELA thematic “mini” unit that yields robust content and language results. We will take a deep dive into how the OCDE Project GLAD® model approaches unit development in today’s educational reality. We will guide you in the selection of a choice number of connected GLAD® strategies that support academic content and literacy outcomes including student products to be assessed with a teacher-student created rubric. This training is open to K-12 teachers already trained in Project GLAD® as well as those who are new to the framework.
