Two Guided Language Acquisition Design (GLAD) Strategies and a Classroom
MetadataShow full item record
More than half of second grade students at an elementary school in Washington tested below the standard reading level. This study focused on using two Guided Language Acquisition Design (GLAD) strategies, the Cooperative Strip Paragraph and graphic organizer, to help students improve their reading ability. The baseline data included multiple assessments during the first week. Each intervention was implemented over the course of three weeks using the gradual release of responsibility method. First, the teacher modeled the strategy. Then, the students worked in groups. Afterwards, students worked independently. The results of this study showed slight improvement in comprehension but were inconclusive for improving reading ability.
