KWL Chart - Graphic Organizer
Stacks Image 14

This KWL chart is a classic reading strategy used by teachers since the mid 1980s. Students activate their background knowledge or schema as they brainstorm what they know about a topic under the “K” column. They then set a purpose for reading by noting what they want to know under the “W” column. Finally, they record what they learned under the “L” column.
