TQD is a tool teachers can use for any grade level with any subject. It gives kids a place to organize their thoughts, questions, and discoveries about a given topic. If you liked the old tried and true KWL strategy, you'll love this chart! It's based on the same idea, but with updated wording and appearance. Use it to assess students' prior knowledge at the beginning of a unit and to measure what they’ve learned at the end. Or just give it to students for their own records as they discover exciting new things in your class.
