Product Description

This products features 101 metacognitive 'thunks': mind-expanding philosophical questions to make students think. It also includes a randomisation feature that allows you to generate seemingly random statements that the students cannot anticipate!

Unlike other thunk or philosophical debate generators: this resource is focused entirely on matters pertaining to metacognition and learning. Example questions include:

* "What is a thought made of?"

* "What does the word 'intelligent' really mean?" and

* "What is the difference between knowledge and belief?"

A highly flexible tool that allows students to practice their philosophical, critical-thinking, discussion and debating skills: teachers can experiment using different discussion formats as they see fit and practice their own questioning skills in the process. It's a fully editable PowerPoint file so you can add your own questions to!

A very simple way to bring metacognition to your school and develop your school or class's Higher-Order Thinking skills!
