The Frayer Model is a word categorization activity. Students analyze words based on their attributes.
This is done by selecting examples and non-examples of the concept.

Strategy procedure

1. Select a concept or word to be analyzed.
2. Demonstrate/model an easy word with the class, for example, “polygon.”
3. Complete the entire four-block graphic organizer together. (See figure below.)
4. Have students practice the strategy in pairs or in small groups, with vocabulary from the unit of study.
5. Share comparison charts with the class.
