This is a 10 page visual guide to help students to think cognitively through meltdowns. Learning Objectives are:
To understand the catalysts for meltdowns
To apply this understanding to begin to rainbow think
8 pages of visual workbook for students, fully illustrated
Lots of metacognitive questions (proven to help students develop new pathways into thinking)
2 pages of Catalyst and Rainbow cards to cut out
Why metacognition? The best definition I have seen is...
'...teaching one’s brain to control the thought processes it has for the purpose of directing it towards the management of their own learning...'
