KWL


This strategy serves several purposes: it elicits prior knowledge of the text, it sets a purpose for reading and it helps students monitor their comprehension.

By being aware of students' interests and prior knowledge the teacher has the ability to create projects and assignments that are challenging and that the students will enjoy. A KWL chart is a tool that can be used to inform teaching as well as guide student learning.
