This event introduces you to the principles of metacognition and provides practical advice on how to develop pupils’ metacognitive skills and knowledge in conjunction with specific subject content.
Evidence from the Education Endowment Trust suggests the use of ‘metacognitive strategies’ – which get pupils to think about their own learning – can be worth the equivalent of an additional +7 months’ progress when used well.
This course enables teaching staff to:
● understand what is meant by metacognitive and self-regulation skills and why they are so valuable for developing learners
● build in strategies for improving pupils’ ability to set goals, monitor performance and evaluate outcomes
● develop strategies for improving pupils’ motivation and ability to learn independently
● identify different approaches to try out and explore what works for pupils
This session is being run by Charlie Teverton from Frank Wise School in Banbury, a special school for children and young adults aged between 2 and 19.
Cost: £30 per person
