Geometry Concept Attainment Lessons (Powerpoint)

 

The Concept Attainment model of instruction encourages discussion and collaboration. Students analyze examples, pick out patterns, and try to explain their thinking. The teacher reveals the academic language in the end. To learn more about using Concept Attainment, check out this video.

I found it incredibly powerful for teaching geometry lessons to my students. I was amazed at how much more engaged students were.

A PowerPoint File

To help other teachers implement Concept Attainment, I've created a Powerpoint (.pptx) file with dozens of lessons. These are fully editable in case you'd like to change or add your own lesson.
