GLAD (Guided Language Acquisition Design) Writing Acceleration 201

May 3 to Jun 12 - ALL DAY

This course will be from May 3-June 12. Bonus access to course videos and resources through June 30th. Teaching writing is challenging enough... But how do you cater to the differentiated needs of your students and provide equitable access to the process for your language learners and emerging bilinguals? Acceleration 201 coaches you through a group of 6 strategies that are at the heart of Project GLAD. Together these strategies increase the engagement and growth of students in listening, speaking, reading and writing - specifically focused on guiding students to and through content related writing.
