Wagon Wheel Comprehension

Question: How help students organize comprehension of an article or chapter?

Answer/Quote: “I took a wagon wheel, wrote a concept in the hub, made 6 spokes, and put who, what, where, when, why, and how on each spoke. Then I drew another circle at the end of each spoke to contain the relevant data. The child would fill out the circles with the information given. What data each could not fill in would be what the child needed to learn.” P.490.

Comment: Try it yourself first. RayS.
