How can you create a whole-school culture that focuses on metacognition and learning-power? How can you create regular, consistent, metacognitive reflection that leads to metacognitive awareness?
These colourful mini-worksheets, to be used at the very end of lessons, result in efficient student reflection on metacognition and the factors that have impacted their learning in that session. This download contains ten different designs: each one can be used by teachers of all subjects.
The worksheets help to achieve:
- Evaluation of metacognitive power levels and how they impacted learning in the lesson
- Identification of metacognitive skills used in the lesson
- Self-monitoring, self-regulation and self-assessment
- Reflection on how lifestyle choices are impacting work
- Development of metacognitive awareness
- Self-regulated learning
They are designed to be printed 4 per A4 page (and then cut/guillotined) so that students are given a 1/4 page worksheet which, once completed, is then stapled or glued into their exercise book. Students should complete these mini-worksheets as a form of DIRT (Dedicated Improvement Reflection Time) as the final activity of a learning-session or lesson. They are very quick: taking less than 5 minutes to distribute, complete and glue in.
By cycling through them, using a different reflection worksheet each time, it allows for varied metacognitive reflection to take place at the end of each lesson with minimal effort on the part of the teacher.
This product alone is a great way to bring metacognition into your school or classroom: there are a number of ways they can be deployed across the school so that students are given a good variety of reflection tasks on a regular basis - perfect for creating a culture of metacognitive reflection.
