    Be GLAD Basics: Hip-Pocket Tools™

    We've found considerable success supporting all students with our trademarked Hip-Pocket Tools. These are 7 key practices that can be used with any instruction with little to no prep and with almost no materials needed. They are very teacher friendly. Almost all of our award winning strategies employ some if not all of the tools.

    These basic tools will increase engagement and interaction with any activity (GLAD or otherwise). If used often enough, you'll create a classroom full of productive energy with a very low affective filter.

    Integrated ELD vs Designated ELD

    The forever swinging pendulum in education continues, but regardless of the swings it is very refreshing for Be GLAD trained teachers to be validated for using GLAD strategies to meet the new mandates for integrated and designated ELD instruction. In California and in many other states, there has been a launch of new ELD standards. The new ELD standards are designed to provide guidelines and structures for providing ELL students with multiple opportunities to experience and build their language. There is a heavy emphasis on experiencing language through text, along with a push to amplify academic language versus using a separate isolated curriculum to teach ELD. For California in essence, the CA ELD standards amplify the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for ELA (English Language Arts). The 5 ELD levels were condensed to three English language proficiency levels: emerging, expanding, and bridging. Three levels are utilized for ease of instruction and assessment.
