Proficient readers scan the text before reading to activate prior knowledge. They also form questions that help set a purpose for reading, and they read to answer these questions. KWL is a strategy used to develop and enhance these skills. This organizer is particularly effective with expository text.

Teaching Tips

Use the KWL organizer as the foundation for a research project. Assign a topic or have students select one. After students activate their prior knowledge and form questions about the topic, take them to the media center to search for answers to their questions.
