KWL Chart and Y Chart; Benefits Both Teachers and Students

by Louise Brooks Teaching Resources Australia

Our personal and professional lives are becoming more and more reliant on digital tools and platforms. Digital learning and resources broaden students' access to education and information while equipping them with skills and mentalities that will help them succeed now and in the future.

Due to the expansion of technology in schools, more teachers and students than ever before are utilising digital learning tools. Digital learning tools should support teachers in their instruction and assist students in understanding and putting key concepts into practise. Many of these tools simplify lesson preparation and organisation, increase student involvement in class debates, and promote efficient teacher-student and caregiver communication.

Are you a teacher or a student? and wish to have highly effective teaching and learning tools?

If yes, then your navigation is on the appropriate page.

The KWL chart displays what students already know, what they desire to know, and what they have learned about a subject (L).

How the KWL chart benefits students

  • A K-W-L chart may be used by students to both organise their research and maintain track of the information they gather.
  • This resource can help students assess their understanding of a subject and decide where they want to concentrate their academic efforts.

How KWL benefits teachers

  • Teachers can ask the students leading questions for each column of the chart, such as "What do you already "know" about this topic?" and "What information about the subject do you "want" to uncover," to help them focus their study.
  • Furthermore, "What have the teachers "learned" as a result of their observation of the students?"
  • The KWL is an excellent resource for assisting pupils with recalling and memorising the topic discussed in class.
  • To get pupils to think before diving into new information at the beginning of a new unit, teachers can employ this thinking tool.
  • As they add to it during the class, it's an interesting method to gauge the students' progress and validate their levels of understanding.


A Y Chart is a three-part graphic organiser that is used to describe three aspects of a subject that a student has learned.

  1. What did you see?
  2. What did you hear?
  3. What did you feel?

How the Y chart benefits students

  • The Y chart enhances students’ critical thinking power.
  • It helps the students realise the positive benefits of their changing behaviour.
  • Y-charts may be used to determine what knowledge the students have about a given subject.

How Y chart benefits teachers

  • Using Y-charts is a great way to teach social-emotional learning and dispute resolution techniques.
  • A teacher can encourage students to build their own meaning and deepen their comprehension of the idea being taught by using past knowledge to create Y-charts.
  • Teachers, as facilitators in the learning process, can generate a shared learning experience.
  • It assists teachers in creating a learner-centered classroom.
