The Concept Attainment Model. Estes, Mintz, and Gunter state, “The concept attainment model is flexible and can be adapted in a variety of ways and with a variety of materials” (Estes et al, 2011). View the video “Guided Discovery of Dictionaries (http://www.youtube.com/watch?&).” Then reflect on what you have observed in the video and respond to the following questions:
§ Concept attainment lessons take time and imagination to plan. Is it worth using our limited time to teach with this model?
§ What are the benefits of using this approach?
§ When would it be appropriate to use this model? Give specific examples.
§ How can this model be used to meet the needs of a diverse group of learners?
§ How can we maximize the time that we spend organizing a concept attainment lesson?
