Inspiring Deep Learning with Metacognition

Inspiring Deep Learning with Metacognition
A Guide for Secondary Teaching

January 2023 | 176 pages | Corwin UK
Understand what metacognition is and how you can apply it to your secondary school teaching to support deep and effective learning in your classroom.

Metacognition is a popular topic in teaching and learning debates, but it’s rarely clearly defined and can be difficult for teachers to understand how it can be applied in the classroom. This book offers a clear introduction to applying metacognition in secondary teaching, exploring the ‘what’, ‘when/how’ and ‘why’ of using metacognition in classrooms with real life examples of how this works in practice.

This is a detailed and accessible resource that offers guidance that teachers can start applying to their own lesson planning immediately, across secondary subjects.

A highly accessible book that is rooted in the knowledge of the theory but also draws upon a wealth of classroom experiences of building pupils' metacognitive understanding across a range of secondary subjects. This balance between the personal experience of expert teachers and wider research will make it a helpful and insight read for students on our PGCE programme.
