The K-W-L strategy,
developed by Donna Ogle (1992), engages students in active text learning
and creates an instructional framework that begins with what students KNOW
about the topic, moves to what students WANT to know about the topic, and
then what students LEARNED about the topic. This strategy can be
completed individually or in a group setting. There is a variety
of other components that may be added to the original framework of
the K-W-L strategy. Six steps are
involved in building and using the K-W-L strategy in your classroom.

What do I WANT to know about the topic?
