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:
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.
