The KWL Graphic Organizer
This chart helps children (and teachers) to organize their learning into three
categoreies: What do I already know about the subject, what would I like to know about
the subject, and what have I learned about the subject.

Children fill out the first and second categories before a lesson begins (What do I
know, and what would I like to learn?), and they fill out the third category after a lesson
has been taught (What have I learned?).

                                                             What did I learn
