In 2010, Education Northwest was awarded a $2.8 million dollar grant from the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) for a four-year experimental study of Project GLAD® (Guided Language Acquisition Design). ALLI associate Jody Bader is the lead trainer for the study, and ALLI President Erick Herrmann is one of four training team members. Read more about the Project GLAD study at the Education Northwest website.
GLAD and SIOP are two models for effectively teaching English Learners (EL). The models differ in significant ways, yet both are effective in helping EL achieve and gain academic language proficiency.
The GLAD SIOP Comparison Document shows connections between these two models.
