Acceleration 301: Vocabulary Boost: Strengthen Language and Academic Vocabulary 

Acceleration 401: Hidden Treasures

During your online ACCELERATION PD teachers across your site will learn... to build on the Project GLAD® foundation you already have for greater future impact! 

Each week you'll receive a new focus strategy with videos to strengthen your background of the strategy, sharpen your skills in using the strategy, prep materials for the strategy to use online or on site, and extend beyond the basics with advanced insider tips and ideas.

Watch the videos and prep your materials anytime during the week!  We'll live in that strategy with you during the week and support you as you implement strategies to meet the current needs of your students. 

LIVE BONUS: We're live every week for a Q&A Zoom session!

COMMUNITY BONUS: You'll be part of a community that includes your school staff and other educators taking the same course. Each session includes access to the Acceleration Community to share ideas, questions and resources with each other throughout the course. 

What are people saying about Acceleration?

The 6 Week OCDE Project GLAD Acceleration course has been amazing!  Such a great way to continue my journey with GLAD and reinforcing all of the strategies we observed in the classroom demonstration.  I am loving the support with learning about applying these strategies digitally with distance learning.  Most of all, the learning of so many great ideas from the collaboration within the community of teachers!

Community Connections

We know how challenging it is to be working from home, transitioning back to school or trying to do hybrid teaching, caring for kiddos and loved ones, staying healthy, and trying to maintain momentum during this unique season.

We're right here with you. We've included a community feature to connect with each other, encourage each other and share ideas throughout the journey! 

Continuing Education Hours!? 

Now you're talkin'! 

The full course with strategy prep includes approximately 3-3.5 hours of video lessons, live Q&A and strategy lesson prep per week. Each Acceleration course is assigned an appropriate number of clock hours based on its content. 

Each district is responsible for setting up their own PD hours. We will work with you to ensure you have all the info you need to fill out the forms and we provide certificates of completion for participants to turn in when they finish the course.
