More Movie Clips On Metacognition

Since I posted my request for video clips demonstrating metacognition a few hours ago, I’ve received lots of suggestions.

I have turned that post into The Best Movie/TV Scenes Demonstrating Metacognition – Help Me Find More and added these to it:

Here’s one from Krissy Venosdale:

Jim Windisch recommended Sherlock’s “Mind Palace.” Here’s a link to a good clip (it’s not embeddable).

Leigh Woznick suggests this scene from The Princess Bride:

Leigh also suggests this scene from The Big Bang Theory when Sheldon teaches Penny physics. The most useful part is at about the 4:00 minute mark when Penny tells him she needs for him to slow down:

Metacognition researcher Steve Fleming suggests this Big Bang Theory clip:

The Best Movie/TV Scenes Demonstrating Metacognition – Help Me Find More

This post was originally just a request to readers for suggested videos.  Though I continue to look for more, I immediately received a number of great recommendations and have turned this post into a “Best” list including videos.

I write a lot about metacognition on this blog (see The Best Posts On Metacognition) and in my books, and help my students develop metacognitive strategies. I’d like to use short clips from TV shows and movies that demonstrate metacognition in action, and was hoping that readers might help me find some.

This post includes several reader-suggested clips – and  can always use more!  Here are links to a few other similar Best video lists on different learning topics, like:

Quote Of The Day: On Metacognition

Too-often-we-teach

I’m a big believer in helping students develop metacognitive skills, and have included related lesson plans in my books and have an extensive The Best Posts On Metacognition list.

The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has just published a free book, along with a short blog post, on the topic. It’s specifically geared toward using metacognition in math class, but the advice is pretty universal.

It’s worth checking out…..
