Be GLAD® is a professional development organization in the area of language acquisition and literacy employing Project GLAD® model and strategies. We take teaching theory and transform it into incredible practical teaching activities.

  • Be GLAD strategies have transformed our dual immersion program. The classrooms are filled with interactive charts that show the high level of student engagement. Thanks to these strategies, students will be better equipped to develop orality in two languages with ease and pride.

  • I love how Be GLAD incorporates art and science and social studies content into teaching high-level vocabulary and the increased teamwork among students

  • 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.
