The Frayer Model is an adaptation of the concept map.  The framework of the Frayer Model includes: the concept word, the definition, characteristics of the concept word, examples of the concept word, and non examples of the concept word.  It is important to include both examples and non examples, so students are able to identify what the concept word is and what the concept word is not.  First, the teacher will assign the concept word being studied, and then talk about the steps involved in completing the chart.

The chart is broken up into each component of the Frayer Model, click on a step and enjoy.
