Frayer Model

The Frayer Model is a vocabulary development tool. In contrast with a straight definition, the model helps to develop a better understanding of complex concepts by having students identify not just what something is, but what something is not. The center of the diagram shows the concept being defined, while the quadrants around the concept are used for providing the details. Words that work well with the Frayer Model include quadrilaterals, insects and democracies. We have included two variations of the model that we have seen used in school settings.

The Ultimate Common Core and Arts Resource-Education Closet 300 teachers, 55 curricula and 1 school. For two weeks this summer, I have been helping to coordinate the Curriculum Innovation Writing Academy with Anne Arundel County Public Schools. It has been an amazing experience: the collaboration and brain power when you combine all of these resources in one location is mind boggling. Teachers being able to walk across the hall and ask questions from other content areas is an essential component of any integrated curriculum, and the fact that every single content area now has integrated components makes me do the happy dance. What I have noticed from these past few weeks from the arts perspective has shown the need for today’s Free Friday resource.

Finally, we will review the calculations of the basic trigonometry functions of angles based on 30, 45, and 60 degree rotations. Learning Objectives[edit]
