Concrete-Representational-Abstract (CRA) Math Days

Concrete-Representational-Abstract (CRA) Day: Integers and Equations

Session Dates

Tuesday June 23, 2020 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM

Closed

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 integers and equations. Teachers 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 (Gersten et al, 2009; NMP, 2008; Riccomini & Witzel, 2010; Witzel 2005). Structuring consistent models and language across the representations is a key part of the planning and implementation process. The PaTTAN Mathematics Initiative has created structures that will increase teachers’ ability to immediately implement the concrete-representational-abstract sequence of instruction as a method of making more mathematics accessible to more students.

 

Objectives

  • Describe & model the components of the CRA sequence of instruction for computing with integers and solving equations.
  • Understand the benefits of CRA across a multi-tiered system of supports.
  • Develop skills necessary to instruct students on integers and equations using a CRA sequence of instruction.

 

Target Audience
