KNQ Graphic Organizer: Know, New, Question

KNQ Graphic Organizer: Know, New, Question

As an alternative to the KWL Chart (What do you KNOW, What do you WANT to know, What have you LEARNED), the KNQ Graphic Organizer (What do you KNOW about the subject, What is NEW about the SUBJECT, What QUESTIONS do you have) requires students to organize their information in a different way. Some student don’t know what they WANT to know, so having them ask QUESTIONS at the end of the lesson can help them reflect of what they’ve learned and what may have been left out. Instead of what a student has LEARNED about the subject, they can examine what is NEW information they have acquired through the lesson. Finally, establishing what students KNOW is always good pedagogical practice as a diagnostic assessment. The KNQ practice can be used to assess student reading comprehension, lesson engagement and understanding or thematic content in a unit. As a lesson assessment, this tool can help gage next steps and gaps in learning.
