Autism KWL Chart



About KWL Charts

The KWL chart was created by Donna Ogle in 1986. KWL charts are used to activate prior knowledge and give the students a chance to explore what they hope to learn. At the end of the educational activties the KWL chart is used to reflect on what has been learned.
