Metacognition Links

24 Sep

I’m noticing more and more links between what I am teaching teachers and my Christian beliefs and practices. For example, not this visual that I made for teachers:

Think how helpful metacognitive thinking is for a Christian:

  • Am I listening to the enemy’s whispers?
  • Am I thinking with God?
  • Am I thinking on things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, of any virtue, and of any praise? (Philippians 4:8)

Obviously, the response called for if we give a “yes” to the first question or a “no” to the next two questions is to change our thinking until it is aligned with God’s mind.

If we can begin practicing metacognitive thinking in our Christian lives, it will not only make our thinking better, but our lives better.
