The OCDE Project GLAD® Tier I Training is available to anyone in the profession of education. This training consists of two parts. The first part is the “2-Day Research and Theory Training.” The second part is the “4 or 5-Day Demonstration Lesson”
PART ONE: 2-DAY RESEARCH AND THEORY TRAINING
In the 2-Day Research and Theory Training, participants dialogue and learn with other professionals in the field about the research that supports the model and its development, planning support, an introduction to OCDE Project GLAD® units, and exposure to approximately thirty effective teaching strategies.
PART TWO: 4 OR 5-DAY DEMONSTRATION LESSON
In the Four or Five Day Demonstration Lesson, teachers observe students utilizing the strategies with a Project GLAD® trainer. The participants are supported by an OCDE Project GLAD® coach who will facilitate a deeper understanding of the strategies, their variations, and engage participants in meaningful conversations around the model. During the afternoons of the demonstration, participants will begin planning and preparing materials to use in their classroom right away to effectively support application and implementation. Follow-up support is also an integral part of this process. Seeing successful strategies with the students is the most effective method of promoting change.
OCDE Project GLAD® NTC can also provide training at your site. For further information, please call (714) 966-4150.
