Reflection: Lesson Planning Early Societies: Vocabulary Skill Building - Section 4: Introduce & Demonstrate the Frayer Model Graphic Organize


The Frayer Model is a graphic organizer designed by Dorothy Frayer and her colleagues at the University of Wisconsin to provide for a thorough understanding of new words. Students are asked to provide a definition of the word, characteristics of the word, examples and nonexamples. This instructional strategy promotes critical thinking and helps students to identify and understand unfamiliar vocabulary. The terms focused on in this lesson relate to the development of agriculture among humans.
