1. Concrete-Representational-Abstract (CRA) Sequence of Instruction: Fractions

Program: Hourly Workshops

Audience: See description

Dates: 1/23/2020

Meeting Times: 1/23/20; 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., registration begins at 8:00 a.m.

Starting Soon
This professional development opportunity will support teachers' learning and implementation of the Concrete-Representational-Abstract (CRA) sequence of instruction, a research-based instructional practice, for the topics of fractions. Participants will experience CRA as both a teacher and a learner. Teaching through a concrete-representational-abstract (CRA) sequence of instruction supports students' learning and understanding of mathematical concepts and procedures. The CRA sequencing of instruction is evidenced to be an effective instructional practice. Structuring consistent models and language across the representations is a key part of the planning and implementation process.

During this session, participants will:
- Describe and model the components of the CRA sequence of instruction for operations with fractions.
- Understand the progression of fractions across grade levels.
- Develop skills necessary to instruct students on fractions using a CRA sequence of instruction.

AUDIENCE: Regular education teachers, teachers with inclusive settings and teachers of students with disabilities. Also appropriate for Math Coaches, Math Specialists, Special Education Coordinators/Supervisors, Curriculum Directors, Administrators. This event is not relevant to short-term and day-to-day substitutes and paraprofessionals.

Note: During this professional learning activity, we may capture portions of the learning experiences on video to showcase and market programs and services. If you have any objections to this, please communicate with the lead facilitator. Thank you.

2. Concrete-Representational-Abstract (CRA) Sequence of Instruction: Addition and Subtraction

Program: Hourly Workshops

Audience: See description

Dates: 2/21/2020

Meeting Times: 2/21/20; 8:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m., registration begins at 8:00 a.m.

The Concrete-Representational-Abstract (CRA) progression of instruction is an evidenced-based sequence of instruction that assists students learning and conceptual understanding for mathematical concepts and procedures. Using structured modeling and consistent mathematical language in planning and implementation is a key part of the process. During this workshop, participants will be introduced to CRA concepts for Addition and Subtraction. Through description, modeling, and active participation, participants will have the opportunity to develop an understanding of the benefits of CRA, its impact on instruction, and develop the beginning skills needed to instruct students using the CRA progression of instruction. During this session participants will:


• Describe & model the components of the CRA sequence of instruction for addition and subtraction.


• Understand the benefits of CRA that impact instruction and learning.


• Develop skills necessary to instruct students on addition and subtraction using a CRA sequence of instruction


• Place value and concepts of equality will also be addressed.


• Teachers will experience this CRA sequence as both a teacher and a learner, and they will be prepared to integrate this methodology into mathematics lessons.
