This graphic organizer helps students record and build on prior knowledge as they work through inquiries and the research process. To use this chart, students:
-record existing understandings (What I Think I Know)
-confirm existing knowledge based on evidence from research (Correct)
-identify and address misconceptions based on research (Misconceptions)
-record new information gathered (New Facts)
-propose new questions or wonderings that arise during the inquiry (Wonderings).
The chart may be completed as a whole-group, small-group or an individual activity. Use of sticky notes to record ideas facilitates the movement of recorded ideas across the categories in the chart.
