Reflection: Standards Alignment What makes sound? - Section 2: Warm-up


The KLEWS chart is the thread that sews an entire unit together.  It serves as a way to display students' background knowledge, validate their questions, visually remind them of vocabulary, and come to greater understandings based upon evidence and observations.  What is most important is that the KLEWS chart serve as a vehicle to move students towards mastery of the standards.

The KLEWS chart is organic, and it changes with almost every lesson.  It also changes from year to year, as students and teacher practices change.  Here's how the KLEWS chart changed in this lesson, and the KLEWS chart after this lesson.  In the subsequent lesson, students will plan and conduct an investigation to answer the testable questions on the KLEWS chart, building the layers within the standards.
