Metacognition: Plan Do Review
Help your students to reflect and critically analyse their thinking before, during and after a task.
Metacognition is often defined as “thinking about thinking”, or “learning to learn” – it is the ability to reflect and critically analyse what you think and choose helpful thought processes. It has been highlighted by The Education Endowment Foundation as one of the most cost-effective ways to help students improve their learning.
There are many metacognitive strategies you can use with your students, and they can often be divided into three stages: before, during and after a task. Our “Metacognition: Plan, Do, Review” teacher CPD workshop will give your staff practical strategies to help your students think metacognitively at each stage of their learning.
This CPD workshop can be delivered on its own, but we recommend booking it as an add-on to our Metacognition: Practical Strategies CPD workshop for a more complete view of metacognition and metacognitive strategies.
This course will help teachers improve students’:
- Metacognitive skills
- Emotional control
- How to enhance motivation
- Avoiding the Planning Fallacy
- Solution-focused questions
- Don’t “blank page” your students
- Help self-regulate emotions
- Controlled focus on the task at hand
- How to ask for and receive feedback
- Effective self-reflection
- Using metacognitive questions for learning
We love to visit schools and meet with educators in person, but we understand that it may not always be possible or practical. This is why we can also deliver any of our Teacher CPD workshops live online on the platform of your choice.
