Teaching Strategies  




The original KWL is a three-column graphic organizer with the columns labeled K (what you know about a topic), W (what you want to know or wonder), and L (what you learned). It is used all the way through a unit or reading of a text, for pre, during, and post. The addition of the H allows students to tell “how” they learned what they did. This forces students to think a bit more deeply and critically.
