Article for metacognition and critical thinking: http://goo.gl/ZSbY2
I really like this article because it’s complicated. It raises some important questions:
- Is there a difference between studying and learning?
- What strategies work well for learning facts vs learning how to respond creatively / critically to a challenge?
- Why is it important to consider an author’s purpose and intended audience while reading?
I think the article would be a valuable tool in both grade 9 and grade 12 classes, but obviously would require greater support in the junior grades. The original posting contains additional images and can be found here: Neurobonkers Blog
