Last updated 10 Nov 2023

Experienced sociology teacher Garnette Watts joins Katie in the Sociology Staffroom to discuss metacognition and its application to the Sociology classroom.

Garnette Watts explains that metacognition involves self-regulation, helping students identify strengths and weaknesses and handle exam questions without panic.

The discussion covers various strategies for metacognition, including reducing cognitive load through keywords, activation of prior learning, and using prompts for reflection.

Garnette emphasizes the importance of feedback, pre-and post-assessment wrappers, and the evolution of teaching methods to foster reflective learners in sociology.
