• What do you Know? What do you Want to know? What have your Learned?
  • KNOW – write down what you know already about....
  • WANT – what do you predict you will learn in this unit
  • LEARNED – as the unit comes to a close, revisit the K and W charts, reviewing where you started and what questions were posed. Turn key learnings into statements in the L column.
  • The KWL structure externalizes what is going on in the mind of a powerful learner who is encountering a new set of concepts: you connect, add information, readjust your thinking, set your goals for more inquiry.
