KWCL Problem Solving

This approach to problem solving is based on a KWL chart for reading. The students really grasp this concept and it is beneficial for organizing their thoughts. Here is a more in-depth look at this problem solving chart:


What do you know?


What is your strategy?


Carry out your plan


Look back and explain

I know...My strategy is...

To solve this problem, I will...

Show all of your work here.This is how I solved the problem...

First... Next... Last...

Students write down that they know about the problem. Most of the information written in this section comes directly from the problem itself. In this section, students write down their strategy for solving the problem. Some strategies include, but are not limited to the following:
  • draw a picture
  • make a number model
  • use tally marks
  • make a graph
  • make a chart
  • guess and check
In this section, students show all of their work. This helps in demonstrating the student's understanding. Students look back at their work and answer to make sure it makes sense.
