    Project GLAD Origin Story

    Project GLAD® was developed by Marcia Brechtel and Linnea Haley in the 1980's and was originally called Project GLEP (Guided Language Experience Process). Their unique perspectives and styles allowed for a comprehensive and amazing program to be created. They formulated this model to focus on academic language acquisition, literacy development, and building cross-cultural skills. Brechtel and Haley designed the strategies and model to specifically target and promote rapid growth with groundbreaking efficiency.

    After field testing Project GLAD for nine years with the United States Department of Education at school sites across the nation with unmatched success, Marcia and Linnea developed a professional development model for national dissemination for their instructional model. Marcia led the National Training Center for years in spreading GLAD far and wide. During that time, Be GLAD developed, owned, and operated the ProjectGLAD.com website, moving Project GLAD into the 21st Century. Currently Marcia and Linnea advise and provide on-going support in the spread of GLAD exclusively with Be GLAD.

    We have continued to research and field-test our practice over the past two decades with increasing success. Our organization has exclusively continued to earn the highest measures of student performance.

    Most Effective Way to Teach ELA Skills

    In real life, subject areas are not categorized and isolated for our students. It is all integrated in our world. Thinking about college and career readiness, our students need to be able to see how all the subject areas connect & work together. This will lead to students having higher order thinking skills and a deeper understanding of the material. Instead of teaching English Language Arts (ELA) skills in isolation, consider building background knowledge first with the content.
