Quick Overview

Metacognition, or thinking about thinking, is an awareness of and control over one's own thinking behaviour. Metacognition: The Neglected Skill Set for Empowering Students is the complete guide for teaching metacognitive reflection in the classroom. It is divided into three sections that highlight the arenas where metacognition can occur: planning, monitoring and evaluating. Within each section, ten specific strategies are developed for immediate use in the classroom. Some of these strategies to enhance reflection include stem statements, think-aloud techniques, double-entry journals, self-administered checklists and portfolio registries.

Metacognition: The Neglected Skill Set for Empowering Students is the complete guide for teaching metacognitive reflection in the classroom.

Some of these strategies to enhance reflection include stem statements, think-aloud techniques, double-entry journals, self-administered checklists and portfolio registries. The easy-to-implement lesson models teach students to: pose study questions for themselves; explore the consequences of their choices, decisions and actions; reflect on how they learn; synthesise their thoughts and actions in a log or journal; and contemplate their reflective strategies for transfer and use. The practical applications in this guide enable teachers to enhance their ability to monitor student reactions, foster reflection of student work and promote students' transfer of learning to novel situations.
