I was particularly excited when I saw their web page dedicated to GLAD UNITS.   Here is what Forest Grove says about GLAD:

The Guided Language Acquisition Design (GLAD) is a  highly successful, structured immersion model of professional development for teachers in multilingual classrooms (Grades K-8). Through Project GLAD training, teachers are provided with research, theory and effective strategies that promote academic language, literacy, academic achievement and cross-cultural skills. The project has been used successfully with more than 30,000 English learners nationwide.
