Frayer Model Think Board

The Frayer Board Think board Template is a graphic organiser, designed by Dorothy Frayer and colleagues at the University of Wisconsin in 2001. The Frayer Model helps activate students’ prior knowledge about a concept or word. Using the Frayer Think Board Template provides students with the opportunity to clarify a concept and communicate their level of understanding. The Frayer Board encourages students to create a definition, describe characteristics or properties of the word or concept, list examples and non-examples from their own prior knowledge of the concept or familiarity with the term.
