Product Description
Accessing prior knowledge and making predictions are strategies that readers use to improve their comprehension of a text.

This graphic organizer extends the basic KWL and challenges students to not only make predictions, but check these predictions for accuracy in light of new information, as well as generate possible questions or points of confusion.

This tool can be used before, during, and after reading to keep students engaged in their content area studies! It can be used Pre-K through 8th grade for whole-class learning, shared reading, in partner, or independent reading.
