Introduction
  • The Concept Attainment model is an instructional
    method that teaches students concepts by using
    pattern recognition and categorizing skills.
  • By learning this skill students are able to
    deductively apply the concept in new situations

3
Instructor preparation
  • Identify a significant concept to the students.
  • Convey the characteristics of the concept to the
    students.
  • Present the students with positive and negative
    examples to illustrate the concept.
  • Ask the students to define the concept.
  • Coach the students to articulate the reasoning
    skills they used.
  • Ask the students for examples of the concept to
    demonstrate their new knowledge.

  • 5th grade students

    to vote. Those students with most votes will be
    on student council.

7
  • - Bill is the leader of a group of boys. He is
    the boss. No one dares to question his

    by the citizens of that city.

11
  • - The mayor of a city is assigned by the governor
    of the state.

12
  • The citizens of the city vote to make
    decisions about city planning. For example, the
    citizens of Davis were able to vote whether or
    not they wanted a Target store in their town.

13
  • - The city officials made the decision to paint
    all the houses in this city pink without asking
    the opinion of the people living in that city.

14
  • In the USA, every citizen, in good standing,
    regardless of race or ethnicity has the right to
    vote.

15
  • - In ancient Egypt, Pharaoh was the supreme
    ruler, and his word was law.

    his son became the new Pharaoh and so on.
