© PMB 2007 Key Points Promoting metacognition helps pupils take more control of their learning. There are a range of strategies that promote metacognition. Planning plenary sessions is a good starting point for developing metacognition. Plenaries are a part of the learning process: –They occur at strategic moments in the teaching sequence and not just the end. –They help make the TS&PC explicit. –They introduce and develop a common language to talk about thinking and learning. –They need to be planned and focused.
