Conceptual Building Blocks Jan. 14 – 15, Feb. 25 -26, March 25 – 26
- Presenter: Mark Helton
- Target Audience: K-5 Mathematics teachers (general and special education), math interventionists, instructional coaches, low incidence teachers at all grade levels
- Description: The Conceptual Building Blocks is a series of three modules designed to build a teacher’s capacity to work with students in various settings. The approach is rooted in a concrete-representational-abstract (CRA) methodology of teaching and develops conceptual understanding along the way to procedural understanding. The areas of focus for the three modules are Addition/Subtraction, Multiplication/Division, and Fractions. The objectives are:
- 1. To build teacher knowledge around the building blocks of numeracy
- 2. To provide strategies for teaching content and differentiating instruction
- 3. To develop a conceptual understanding of the core components of number and operations
- 4. To catalyze change within the school through coaching sessions
- Attend all 3 modules
- Participate in at least one (1) coaching session with a CBB Trainer or a school/district instructional coach who has been trained in CBB (or is currently attending the modules with the teacher). The coaching sessions will occur following each of the module trainings.
- Commit to implementing the elements of the modules
