Presentation Transcript
slide2

Metacognitive skills enhance learning. Metacognition involves being aware of one’s strengths and weaknesses as a learner. Involve students in discussions of their learning process and problem solving strategies. Realize that, for some students, weak metacognitive skills can act as a barrier to learning- but that these skills can be taught (Bruer, 1997).

slide3

As a gifted and talented teacher, it is easy to teach only to students’ strengths. The students can be turned off when you use the word weakness. GT students often function under the assumption that they possess only strengths. In order for me to get my students to understand that they may need help in certain areas, I refer to it as their weakest strength instead of their weakness.

slide4

Once students take the MAP test, I hold conferences with them to discuss each area of their RIT score. I have them write each of their scores so when we work on Fantastic Five, they will be more aware of what area they need to focus on and when to ask more questions or ask for more explanations.

Once I analyze and determine my students’ strengths and weaknesses based on their MAP scores, I develop individualized packets for each student based on his/her weakest strength.

Students spend up to two classes completing the packet. Next, students decide how they are going to present the material they have learned to their classmates. Finally, students present their lessons. While a student is presenting, their classmates participate with their new teacher.

  • After the final MAP test is given, I re-evaluate each student’s strengths and weaknesses.
  • Students then are given another individualized packet. They are given one in math and ELA.
  • This time, they make a jeopardy game based upon their weakest strengths in math and ELA.
