Cues, Questions, Advance Organizersquest.png

Cues, questions, and advance organizers are all techniques that teachers can use to help students activate their prior knowledge about a topic. Activating prior knowledge is an important step in the learning process as it prepares students to relate the new knowledge based on what they already know. The K-W-L chart is a good example as it helps students to list what they know, what they want to find out, and what they have learned. Graphic organizers provide students with a framework for organizing new information.
