Methods and Strategies: Strategy Makeover—K-W-L to T-H-C

by: David T. Crowther and John Cannon

The K-W-L strategy works well as a preassessment tool because it reveals what students know and want to learn about a topic before instruction and as a postassessment tool because it fosters reflection. Minor modifications to the strategy can incorporate elements essential to science inquiry: questioning, methodology, and evaluation. This new framework is called T-H-C, for the questions, What do you Think? How can we find out? and What do we Conclude?
