Modifying and accommodating

  • What types of accommodations do we try?
  • What types of modifications do we try?
why would cra be effective
Why Would CRA be Effective?
  • Multimodal forms of math acquisition to aid memory and retrieval (Engelkamp & Zimmer; Nilsson)
  • Multiple learning styles are being met to aid relevance and motivation (Oberer)
  • Meaningful manipulations of materials allow students to rationalize abstract mathematics (Demby; Noice & Noice)
  • Provides an alternative to algorithm memorization of math rules(Witzel)
  • Transportable without concrete materials (Witzel)
teach to mastery with cra
Teach to Mastery with CRA
  • Model and guide students in their use of manipulative objects and pictorial representations
  • Teach students step by step gradually introducing mathematical vocabulary.
  • Move from concrete to representational to abstract only after students show accuracy without hesitations in manipulations or drawings.
  • Assess each level of learning.

cra in action1
CRA IN ACTION
  • Lesson template
  • Spending more time on the concrete and the representational results in greater understanding in the abstract
  • Representational is the bridge from concrete to abstract
  • Abstract assessment is not always necessary
  • CRA makes learning FUN
