ACSI Hawaii Early Educators GLAD Training
January 23, 2017–January 27, 2017
CEED Training Center, 2707 S King Street, Honolulu, HI
ACSI Early Education is excited to announce a training opportunity just for you!
Language acquisition and literacy are major components of early learning programs, and equipping teachers and directors to deliver that with excellence is so important. At ACSI, we're convinced that training is crucial to providing developmentally appropriate, interactive, engaging instruction to young children. I invite you or your staff to participate in Preschool GLAD® training - Guided Language Acquisition Design. It's training for staff to creating a rich environment of language, ideas and concepts.
It's a five day training that gives participants the strategies that enable them to more creatively, more actively implement curriculum and instruction in preschool classrooms, and follows the week of training with monthly online instructional and coaching sessions. Then in late spring, each participant will have a personalized coaching session in their own classroom to aid their implementation of GLAD strategies, and answer those how-to questions that arise.
The five-day training will be held will be held January 23-27, 2017, at the CEED Training Center in Honolulu. Registration is open now. Space is limited. We've received a generous grant from the Fee underwritten by the Samuel N. & Mary Castle Foundation to allow you to participate in this year of training for just $75 per participant. The accompanying brochure will give you more details or you can give me a call or email to speak personally about this opportunity.

Gratitude: it’s one of my favorite topics because it has such power to effect change in our hearts, in others, in our communities, and even in our schools. I’ve invited Jay Ferguson, headmaster of Grace Community School (Tyler, Texas), to write about gratitude as we enter the Thanksgiving season here in the U.S. —Dan
It’s a question many Christian parents have asked: By having my kids attend a Christian school, am I nurturing them and equipping them for life in secular society, or am I potentially harming them by shielding them from it? Jay Ferguson, headmaster of Grace Community School (Tyler, Texas), addresses that question head-on in this issue. I hope you’ll consider his excellent points.
