Helping Students Discover How They Learn

Helping children to understand how they learn is as important, if not more important, than the content they are learning. In this webinar, we will explore ways to incorporate “learning about learning” into lessons we are already teaching and also discuss developing lessons designed specifically to help children understand their own learning. How do we decide on what parts of learning to focus on? What are the essential components of these lessons? What kinds of questions can we pose to help children reflect on their own learning practices? We will explore these issues and more in an effort to incorporate metacognition into our daily lives with students.
