Abstract

The purpose of this study was to analyze the effects of Project GLAD on the oral language development of English language learners at the second grade level. To achieve this, I taught a five-week GLAD unit on Plant and Animal Life Cycles in its entirety within the setting of my own second grade classroom. I collected student oral language observation data on four ELL students throughout the unit. It was important to understand how the strategies employed through the GLAD model were affecting student language development, and whether the effects were positive or negative.
