  • 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.

    Dr. Alex GonzalezPrincipal - Dual Language Elementary
  • Be GLAD strategies are great for all students. I used them previously as a dual language elementary school teacher and I now use them with my Spanish students at the secondary level. They support the development of all four modalities of language and create an interactive learning environment.
