You've probably already heard of 'Think, Pair, Share' as an effective way to manage classroom discussions whilst promoting individual reflection: such an approach is widely cited as an effective way to engage students in metacognition and metacognitive reflection.
This 100+ slide PowerPoint contains over 300 metacognitive reflection questions making it the definitive 'Think, Pair, Share' metacognition discussion resource. You can save loads of time by downloading this today, it includes a whole-school license so that you can share it with the other teachers in your school!
It's great for use:
- During form/tutor time
- As a starter activity
- At the end of lessons to make good use of spare time
The questions are not subject-specific (although some do refer to literacy and numeracy) and the PowerPoint includes a 'Randomiser' slide: this allows you to instantly conjure new metacognitive reflection questions for class discussions and allows you to use this resource many times with the same group!
We've spent lots of time to make this the definitive Think-Pair-Share metacognition resource: make sure you check out the engaging and colourful design using the preview images above!
