Tier I


The OCDE Project GLAD® Tier I Training is available to anyone in the profession of education.  It involves the Two-Day Research and Theory Training where participants will have the opportunity to 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 about thirty effective teaching strategies.  Following this training will be the Four or Five Day Demonstration Lesson. The demonstration is a unique opportunity for teachers to observe students utilizing the strategies with a Project GLAD® trainer.  The participants will be 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 be able to start 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 sttudents is the most effective method of promoting change.
