“Teachers who promote reflective classrooms ensure that students are fully engaged in the process of making meaning.”
– Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick
Soar beyond the “one-size-fits-all” approach to spark engagement and foster student agency for all learners. We’ll explore the why, what, and how of student metacognition in this workshop along with key practices such as self-assessment, reflection, and goal-setting.
This interactive experience will be guided by our learner-centered approach, which promotes and cultivates equitable and inclusive learning communities. During this session, participants will:
- build understanding of how metacognition impacts learning.
- investigate metacognition strategies and protocols to support self-assessment, reflection, and goal setting.
- explore the process of designing metacognitive learning experiences .
- tap into our collaborative learning community for feedback and inspiration.
All Learner-Centered Workshops model experiences and practices that can be applied with young learners, too. Educators will engage in the learning process through collaboration, meaning-making, inquiry, and reflection; set goals aligned to current teaching practices and desired outcomes; build transferable skills and competencies that lead to transformational learning; and experience community-building practices that encourage and promote engagement.
