Quick Overview

How do we prepare our students for the test of life? We give them
the gift of self-reflection, self-awareness, self-initiative, self-direction,
self-assessment and self-regulation - the gift of knowing when they know, and
when they don't know. Metacognition: The Neglected Skill Set for Empowering
Students, is written with the teacher in mind. It is more practical than
theoretical, but most definitely grounded in research findings and connected to
emergent data. With the 30 ready-to-use metacognitive strategies in this book,
teachers will deepen learning for their students through explicit reflections
on planning, monitoring and evaluating their own work. As students learn how to
think about their own thinking, they become more aware and better able to
make adjustments on their own work.

How do we prepare our students for the test of life? We teach them how to learn when they are not being taught! In other words, we give them the gift of self-reflection, self-awareness, self-initiative, self-direction, self-assessment and self-regulation – the gift of knowing when they know, and when they don’t know.

Metacognition: The Neglected Skill Set for Empowering Students, is written with the teacher in mind. It is more practical than theoretical, but most definitely grounded in research findings and connected to emergent data.

With the 30 ready-to-use metacognitive strategies in this book, teachers will deepen learning for their students through explicit reflections on planning, monitoring and evaluating their own work. As students learn how to “think about their own thinking”, they become more aware and, thus, better able to make adjustments on their own work. They gain a sense of ownership, and teachers get results they can count on through students empowerment.

Metacognition is like magic for 21st century classrooms – it changes student behaviours before your eyes.
