6-Day GLAD Training at ICS

ICS Teaches is pleased to offer the 6-Day In-Person Core Training, designed for teachers looking for immersive training.

The first 2 days of the 6-day In-Person Core BeGLAD Training will focus on the research and theory behind the GLAD strategies. This foundation is a prerequisite for the subsequent 4-day demonstration, which provides examples of the strategies in action with real-live students! Participants will be coached by a Certified Trainer as they witness a modified 6 week unit before their very eyes being demonstrated by another Certified Agency Trainer and a group of students who are attending our Summer Success program. Participants will also have the opportunity to plan, create, and modify units/lessons each afternoon with the guidance of trainers and colleagues.
