## From the Paper:

"I chose concept attainment because bar graphs are the students' first peek into the week of graphing. "Concept attainment is the search for and listing of attributes that can be used to distinguish exemplars from negative exemplars of various categories" (Joyce, Weil & Calhoun, 2009, p. 108). Although the very first graph they learn is a bar graph, I used all the similar graph types as positive exemplars because they will be seeing all of these in the coming week. "It is by comparing the positive exemplars and contrasting them to the negative ones that the concept or category is learned" (Joyce, Weil & Calhoun, 2009, p. 111). When listing exemplars, pictures were also used so students could make a stronger connection, plus graphs have a large visual component. I chose a couple charts with information as negative exemplars because although they contain information, they are not graphs. Students were asked about information about
themselves to make it interesting and relevant to the students. I think that using the Concept Attainment model as opposed to other models here is a good choice for this first lesson on graphs. It provides very concrete examples about what graphs are and are not."
