Self-Regulation at a Distance – Modelling Metacognition in MFL

Head of MFL Kate Cooper demonstrates how she models writing to her Y9 French class

Continuing with our series of self-regulation videos, Head of MFL Kate Cooper demonstrates how she models her thought processes, when completing a written response to a French GCSE question.

Kate models very carefully how she plans her approach and what she is thinking at each stage of the process. She also explains how she would use a knowledge organiser to support her with this. This is a great example of the planning’ stage of the self’regulation cycle, described in the EEF Metacognition Guidance Report’:

Planning—encouraging pupils to think about the goal of their learning (set by the teacher, or themselves) and to consider how they will approach the task; this includes ensuring they understand the goal, activate relevant prior knowledge about the task, select appropriate strategies, and consider how to allocate their effort.

Here’s the video.
