That was Then, This is Now

So this is the science homework that both of my boys recently had entitled “A Closer Look at Cancer.”  I kinda wish I could have been a bug on the wall when the teacher read over Nicky’s response.  Are you familiar with this KWL pre-lesson questionnaire some teachers use?  The student first writes what he already KNOWs about the subject, then what he WANTs to know, and then usually after the lesson the student goes back and fills out the what he LEARNED.  Nicky filled out his LEARNED section up front.  Nicky had T-Cell ALL leukemia, and Tim is his fraternal twin brother.

Nicky’s KWL: Know:   Personal experience    Want to Know:   Honestly nothing more    Learned: It Sucks

Tim’s KLW:  Know: It can kill and there is multiple forms  Want to know: What is it actually?

Perspective is everything.

After considering their answers, I began to wonder what I might write in a KWL chart if someone handed it to me. So here are my thoughts:

Comments of your own reader?  What would your own KWL Chart look like?

Because hope is amazing medicine…here are parting words from Joshua 1:9:

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
