The Conceptual Building Blocks is designed to build a teacher’s capacity to work with students in various settings. The approach is rooted in a concrete–semi-concrete–abstract (CSA) methodology of teaching and develops conceptual understanding along the way to procedural understanding. This three-day module focuses on building fraction sense, operations with fractions, connections to decimals, and addressing misconceptions. Participants will also learn how to incorporate several High-Leverage Practices for Special Education into their instruction on fractions.
Between the in-person meetings, there will be a one hour virtual follow-up. (PD credit awarded)
Additionally, the trainer will schedule times with each participant for classroom visits and coaching.
