The KWL graphic organizer is a tool writers use to keep track of information they research or learn throughout the writing process. With the KWL chart, writers are able to note what information they already have on a particular topic. This allows writers to access valuable background knowledge, anecdotes, narratives, experience, learning, and memories for a project. As writers move through the writing process, they note what they want to learn about a particular topic and what they learned.

​What is a graphic organizer?
A graphic organizer is a visual tool that writers use when planning a piece of writing. There are many styles of graphic organizers such as: outline, 5Ws, Venn diagram, 3 column notes, visual cluster, inverted triangle, KWL (know, want to know, learn), plot diagram, and there are many more.

​Different graphic organizers tend to appeal to different writers. For example, some writers use only the traditional outline for all of their planning needs, while others will switch between organizers depending on the writing style.

How can writers use graphic organizers?
Writers use graphic organizers in the planning stage of the writing process, which is just after the brainstorming stage. Take the valuable information from the brainstorming and add it to the graphic organizer. This process allows writers to keep their important information which can be used in writing the first draft.
