Abstract

The K-W-L strategy provides students with structure to guide them when reading textbooks or other resource materials, and enables them to take responsibility for their own learning. The process incorporates the teacher's guidance with student input allowing both to feel ownership in the learning process. K-W-L lends itself well to a health curriculum that promotes student decision-making, problem-solving, and active participation.
