The KWHLAQ chart is taking the KWL chart a step farther with inquiry.
The chart is in two formats, a two page horizontal chart and a one page vertical chart.
Students can chart What do I think I know about the topic, What do want and need to find out, How will I go about finding answers to my questions, What am I learning as I move along my inquiry and at the end, What action will I take as a result of my inquiry, and What questions do I have as I continue my inquiry after I am done studying my topic. The KWHLAQ idea came from the book "Why are school buses always yellow?".
