  • Be GLAD has helped me plan to meet and integrate standards. The backwards planning really supported my understanding of how to plan to meet all social studies and science standards (and to integrate literacy into it). It has also made learning more visual for my students.

  • Be GLAD has opened up a whole new world of teaching for me. It just makes sense and helps reach so many learners. I have noticed a difference. I wish I had learned to Be GLAD long ago.
