One way to start a new topic is to create a KWL Chart (a 3 column list) with your students.
- In the 1st column, list what the students think they Know about the topic.
- In the 2nd column, list what they Wonder about the topic. (They can list their questions about the topic here.)
- Save the chart until the topic/unit is complete. At that time the students and teacher together can fill in the 3rd column by listing what the children have Learned.
