How does that help students with their comprehension?

Sep 26th, 2017

K-W-L (Ogle, 1986) is an instructional reading strategy that is used to guide students through a text. Students begin by brainstorming everything they Know about a topic. This information is recorded in the K column of a K-W-L chart. Students then generate a list of questions about what they Want to Know about the topic. These questions are listed in the W column of the chart. During or after reading, students answer the questions that are in the W column. This new information that they have Learned is recorded in the L column of the K-W-L chart.   

Purpose

The K-W-L strategy serves several purposes:

  • Elicits students’ prior knowledge of the topic of the text.
  • Sets a purpose for reading.
  • Helps students to monitor their comprehension.
