  • Download 101 metacognitive 'thunks' for your students today: mind-expanding philosophical questions to make them think deeply about their own learning-processes and how to boost learning-power. It includes a randomisation feature that allows you to generate seemingly random questions that the students cannot anticipate!

     

    Unlike other thunk or philosophical debate generators: this resource is focused entirely on matters pertaining to metacognition, epistemology and self-regulated learning. Example questions include:

     

    • "What is a thought made of?"
    • "What does the word 'intelligent' really mean?" and
    • "What is the difference between knowledge and belief?"

     

    It's a highly flexible tool that allows students to practice their philosophical, critical-thinking, discussion and debating skills: teachers can experiment using different discussion formats as they see fit and practice their own questioning skills in the process. It's a fully editable presentation file so you can add your own questions to!

     

    This is a powerful way to bring metacognition to your school and develop students' Higher-Order Thinking skills!
