My intention in learning is that each student will be able to achieve success in learning, which requires that they take ownership in their own learning. This sample is based on my own adaption on KWL – it challenges the nature of “knowing”, and instead uses “what we think we know” as a focusing question (See: Making Thinking Visible, 2011). The Think, Wonder, Learn, Explore chart allows students to challenge their assumptions, document their curiosities, come up with their own strategies to learn, and synthesize their learning.
