Teaching Metacognitive Thinking Skills

We all want our students to be metacognitive learners, yet it isn’t always easy to help children develop these valuable thinking skills within a crowded curriculum. This session explores how metacognitive thinking helps students to learn and to grow, with a strong focus on practical strategies to teach and support metacognitive knowledge and metacognitive control in the classroom.

Participants will develop their understanding of:

  • How to explicitly teach metacognitive strategies.
  • How to implicitly reinforce the use of metacognitive thinking skills.
  • How to ensure students routinely employ metacognitive strategies.
  • How to ensure students use these skills confidently and flexibly across a range of learning tasks.
  • Strategies to evaluate students comprehension of, and use of, metacognitive thinking.

Participants: This session is suitable for teachers, school leaders and student support staff from Prep-12.  (Yes, Preps can be taught metacognitive thinking skills!)
