The Orange County Department of Education Project GLAD® Unit provides evidence-based practices that help design classrooms and lessons where language comes alive through content.

Our Guiding Principles informs our work:

  • All students have valuable assets that foster life-long success
  • Diversity and respect is cultivated and celebrated
  • Research and data drive our practice
  • Development of language proficiency with language learner students is a core value

Guided Language Acquisition Design is a professional learning model that transforms the teaching and learning process. Explore the website for resources.
