Metacognition: Reasoning and Thinking through problem solving


We are two teachers from Banyan Fields PS. I have been part of the primary maths/science specialist program in 2016.
We will be showcasing some rich/open ended problem solving tasks that can be differentiated to cater for students from Foundation to Year 6. One of these lessons will be part of or all of a maths300 lesson. During this presentation we will be using questioning and metacognition techniques that will show case students critical and creative reasoning and thinking skills.
The aim of our workshop is to have participants walk away with some authentic, meaningful lessons to try in their own classrooms. However, we are also expecting participants to take away strategies and questioning techniques to use that would allow their students to confidently share their thinking and reasoning in a verbal, visual or hands on way. Pen and paper for note taking.
