Research by the EEF indicates that one of the most cost effective ways to raise standards is through the implementation of the principles of meta-cognition. This course links theory to practice exploring lots of practical activities that can be used to accelerate progress in Maths:
  • Creating a whole school ethos that embraces the principles of metacognition in Maths lessons.
  • Teaching pupils metacognitive strategies including how to plan monitor and evaluate their learning (linking to mathematical investigations).
  • How teachers can model their own thinking to help pupils develop their metacognitive skills e.g. What do I know about problems like this? What ways of solving them have I used before?
  • Setting an appropriate level of challenge in Maths to develop pupils’ metacognition.
  • Promoting metacognitive talk in Maths lessons including peer and pupil – teacher talk. Developing pupils’ questioning (asking questions in class and pupil to pupil questioning).
  • Supporting pupils to develop independent learning skills when tackling Maths problems.
