?_Geography KWL Chart
 

A KWL Chart is a useful tool for providing a purpose and focus for reading and learning about a new concept or topic. It shows students what they know, encourages them to ask questions, and helps them to organize their knowledge. You can use the tool to introduce a new topic, to determine students' prior knowledge about a topic, and to generate research questions for a project.

After students have completed their charts, ask them to compare what they knew, what they wanted to know and what they learned from reading this Web site. Ask them to look at which of their questions were answered and which ones were not. Were any of their original questions inappropriate? What further research might help them answer any unanswered questions?
