Description: Metacognition is to have an awareness and understanding of your own though processes. O’Mally, Chamot, Stewner-Mazanaares, Russo & Kupper (1985) argue, ‘Students without metacognitive approaches are essentially learners without direction or opportunity to review their progress, accomplishments, and future directions’. This session introduces the concept of meta-cognition and considers a range of strategies teachers can embed in their lessons to encourage students to reﬂect on their current level of thinking in order to determine how they are going to move forward.
