These mini-worksheets, to be used at the very end of lessons, encourage efficient student reflection on metacognition and what factors have impacted their learning in that session. This download contains ten different designs!
The aims of these five-minute reflection sheets include:
Evaluation of metacognitive power levels and how they impacted learning in the lessons
Identification of metacognitive skills used in the lesson
Self-monitoring and evaluation
Reflection on how life-style is impacting work
They are designed to be printed 4 per A4 page (and then cut/guillotined) so that students are given a 1/4 page worksheet, which is then stapled or glued into their exercise book. Students should complete these mini-worksheets as a form of DIRT (Dedicated Improvement Reflection Time) as the final activity of a learning-session or lesson. They are very quick: taking less than 5 minutes to distribute, complete and glue in.
It is advised that these are printed and guillotined in bulk: saving time and allowing them to use them repeatedly throughout the term. By cycling through all of them, it allows for varied metacognitive reflection to take place at the end of each lesson.
This product alone is a great way to bring metacognition into your school or class-room: there are a number of ways they can be deployed across the school so that students are given a good variety of reflection tasks on a regular basis - creating a culture of metacognitive reflection.
Notes on Printing: we have included ‘Print Ready’ .pdf format files along with the original .doc (Word) ones. When printing from Word, be sure to select ‘4 Pages Per Sheet’. Print one-sided, preferably in colour.
