Creating Contexts for Inquiry: From KWL to PRC2
Ogle, Donna
Knowledge Quest, v38 n1 p56-61 Sep-Oct 2009
The teaching profession has come a long way in developing frameworks that encourage and structure student inquiry. This article features the KWL (We Know, We Want to Know, We Learned/Still want to learn) framework that the author has developed for over 20 years, as a graphic organizer tool to encourage inquiry and student questioning. This framework has become a part of the basic tool kit of teachers in countries around the world. A key to stimulating questioning is creating contexts where inquiry and exploration are nurtured and respected. This article also features PRC2 (Partner Reading and Content, Too), another framework that supports students in learning to engage in discussions. (Contains 1 figure.)
