Metacognition: an awareness and understanding of one’s own thought process.


“What do you think?” This is such an easy question to ask.
When we are in a rush to tell…we don’t always ask what our students are thinking. What are they wondering? How can we facilitate their learning? How can we scaffold questions so students learn processes to become more independent? When we ask our students what they are thinking with specific types of questions we can help make strategies for thinking and problem solving more visible.
