Avoiding Rules that Expire - Enhancing your Mathematics Instruction for Students with Disabilities
- Participants will learn how to use the CSA model for instruction (Concrete – Semi-Concrete- Abstract) to build students’ conceptual understanding
- Participants will learn to avoid “teaching by telling” including navigating away from “rules that expire” and less than precise mathematical vocabulary
- Participants will learn to use connections to prior knowledge and multiple representations to support student’s long term understanding.
- Participants will learn how to engage students in mathematical thinking and make math memorable.
