  • 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. 1.      To build teacher knowledge around the building blocks of numeracy
  2. 2.      To provide strategies for teaching content and differentiating instruction
  3. 3.      To develop a conceptual understanding of the core components of number and operations
  4. 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
