Think!: Metacognition-powered Primary Teaching

September 2021 | 208 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

The perfect guide to help you embed metacognitive approaches to your teaching.

What is metacognition and how can you use it in your teaching? Metacognition – being aware of our own ways of thinking – is popular in education, but it is not always obvious how it links to teaching practice and how to teach it explicitly. This book translates meaningful concepts from research literature not only into practical strategies to try in your classroom but also gives you the opportunity to reflect on metacognitive strategies that you already use.

Key topics include:

  • Metacognitive strategies in a range of subjects, including English and mathematics
  • Dismantling metacognitive misconceptions
