Metacognition is one of the most popular requests we receive for training and we know a great many schools have it as a school improvement priority. This online workshop will offer clarity about what is involved in metacognition, as well as teaching ideas for the classroom that will support pupils in becoming metacognitive. Examples are drawn from both primary and secondary in order to emphasize that this is an issue for all teachers across all phases.
This workshop will:
Define what is and what isn’t involved in metacognition
Review the evidence base around metacognition and demonstrate why it is so important
Demonstrate a range of teaching ideas that reveal how to support pupils in becoming metacognitive
Ensure the ideas are practical, ‘lesson ready’ and of immediate application
