					Samples of Metacognitive Strategies For Teachers
The teacher will:

          develop students’ attitudes about themselves as problem solvers and encourage
           risk taking in problem solving

          think out loud when working out a problem

          ask questions which require all levels of thinking (knowledge, comprehension,
           application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation)

          teach thinking skills explicitly (i.e., classifying, sequencing, determining
           cause/effect, drawing conclusions, predicting)

          use wait time to promote thinking and processing

          demonstrate, label, and praise critical thinking as it occurs

          help students recognize/identify their own learning styles and know how they
           learn best

          build processing time into lessons in the whole group, small group, or pairs

          have students plan, monitor, and evaluate their thinking in writing (use of a
           thinking log, for example)

          have students verbalize their thinking (indicate the steps involved in completing a
           task, indicate where they encountered difficulty, steps they took to complete the
           task successfully)

          provide advanced organizers

          use graphic organizers to illustrate connections

          help students make the connections between new learning and past experience

          use stems or patterns to facilitate processing (i.e., “I think...”, “I wonder...”, “I
           learned...”)

          ask process questions at the end of the lesson which encourage students to
           internalize what they are learning
