Practising teacher and growth mindset expert Katherine Muncaster has worked with bestselling formative assessment expert Shirley Clarke to develop these easy-to-use lessons which encourage primary school children to think about thinking, know what learning means, and take charge of their learning because of that knowledge.
With practical strategies, lesson plans, and extensive examples in full colour for Reception to Year 6, this comprehensive resource explicitly explores teaching and developing metacognition, and illustrates how a whole-school approach to metacognition can be developed. It provides:
- A detailed introduction on metacognition and learning powers.
- Practical classroom activities and strategies to develop metacognition and an effective learning culture.
- Six lessons for every year group, which explore metacognition in a range of different contexts.
- Accompanying easy-to-access video clips that provide demonstrations of the impact of this approach in lessons.
