Repeated research meta-analyses find that students who struggle the most in math benefit from explicit and systematic instruction. In this session, participants will learn and apply critical features of systematic math instruction to other techniques, such as CRA. Content examples will range from number sense to whole and rational number operations to factoring polynomials.

Goals:

  • Understand the role / purpose of explicit instruction in mathematics (e.g., when and why it should be used)
  • Understand the critical features of explicit instruction
  • Understand the content that should be covered in supplemental / intensive instruction (the common content areas that trouble students).
  • Observe models of explicit instruction and the CRA sequence of instruction.
  • Practice applying features of explicit instruction
