Teachers follow these steps: • Post a K-W-L chart. Teachers post a large chart on the classroom wall, divide it into three columns, and label them K (What We Know), W (What We Wonder), and L (What We Learned). • Complete the K column. At the beginning of a thematic unit, teachers ask students to brainstorm what they know about the topic and write this information in the K column. Sometimes students suggest information that isn’t correct; these statements should be turned into questions and added to the W column. • Complete the W column. Teachers write the questions that students suggest in the W column. They continue to add questions to the W column during the unit. • Complete the L column. At the end of the unit, students reflect on what they’ve learned, and teachers record this information in the L column of the chart.
