What is the KWL strategy? Did you see this basic but effective chart previously? We have created a ready to use one for you. KWL Chart is a graphical organizer that helps you in the learning process.
The KWL abbreviation stands for the Knowledge that you already have, the information that you Want to know, and a summary of what you have Learned during the learning process. So, we try to create a dynamic chart as much as possible. In that way, you will be able to update it while your knowledge is growing about the topic you choose for the learning process.
Additionally, the KWL graphic organizer will help you to set your goals. Because once you know more about something, you will be more interested in it and the more you want to know.
In the 21st century, this KWL worksheet became more popular and usable. Thus, the KWL table got a little extended, and some extra columns that can be helpful added. These new columns allow you to organize your progress even better.
What extra columns do we have in KWHLAQ?
H stands for “How can I learn? How can I find the information?”, A is about Actions that you will take when you learn the subject better and how you can use it for your purpose. The last letter, Q is a new question coming up with the learning process. Because like we said before the more you know the more questions you may have.
Our KWL template will help you with organizing all this learning process even in the standard or the extended version. You can decide which version you will use according to your needs.
Probably, if you would like to learn about a simple subject the Know Want Learned chart will be a better option. However, if you are working on some project or a more complex task, you will probably learn a lot during this time. Additionally, you may not only change your approach but also generate lots of questions and new ideas, so the extended version will be the best option to use. Just write down your notes under each column according to your current knowledge and build up on them within a time.
