Important Metacognitive Thinking Strategies Demonstrated

Posted on March 5, 2011 at 5:52pm 0 Comments

I've learned through the BrainSMART program that one of the most powerful tools you can give your students is thinking skills. When you or I read (or do math, science, and even everyday life situations), we automatically make predictions, inferences, questions, schema, etc to help us understand and make decisions. Most of us weren’t explicitly taught these skills…we simply figured them out over time. Just imagine the… Continue

It's Good Reader Boy! 3:30 Weekdays...

I’ve wanted to come up with a clever way for students to remember their thinking for reading strategies.  A list just seems too boring.  One thing I’ve learned in BrainSMART is to connect information to parts of the body to make it more memorable.  So I came up with this…

How to learn Pre Calculus in 8 steps

Pre calculus is the study of basics of calculus. Pre calculus deals with all basics of algebra I and II and basics of trigonometry. It covers limits, conic section, logarithm, vectors, etc. Pre calculus covers only the small amount of calculus concepts. Pre calculus may be difficult for many students, but there are some steps which will…See More
