Metacognition in the Classroom: Teaching students to think about thinking

Monday 3:00 Room B-1
 
Presenter: Bruce Miller, Landmark School

 
Metacognition involves self-knowledge of how one learns and how best to approach a particular discipline. As students grow aware of their own learning styles and grasp the process of studying, they become more successful. Content disciplines such as social studies require students to integrate many skills and provide a prime opportunity to explicitly teach metacognitive awareness. Join this session to explore strategies to foster students’ ability to “think about thinking.”
