Project GLAD® was developed and field-tested for nine years by the United States Department of Education. It is a professional development model in the area of language acquisition and literacy. The strategies and model promote language acquisition, academic achievement, and cross-cultural skills. At the conclusion of the Project GLAD® study in the early 1990’s, the U.S. Department of Education placed a mission of national dissemination upon us. At that point, the federally funded project ended and our new goal began to help the nation ‘BE GLAD’!

BE GLAD LLC has been providing Project GLAD® training since the end of that federal project. It has an elite set of trainers that help educators employ these highly effective strategies. It is the only organization currently endorsed by Marcia Brechtel, the co-creator of Project GLAD®, to provide this professional development to educators in the area of language acquisition and literacy.

            Be GLAD Awareness gives a brief overview of GLAD.  The “what” is that the Guided Language Acquisition Design (GLAD) provides an organizational structure for an integrated, balanced literacy approach. The integration, of listening, speaking, reading, and writing into all content areas and the interrelating of science, social studies, and literature with each other, underscores research that language is acquired most effectively when the emphasis is on meaning and the message. Language, any language, should be acquired while studying something of interest or real life use.    BE GLAD Awareness at CABE, San Francisco, CA on March 4, 2016 from 10am-11am (register at OR email:
