I loved this video when you first shared it with me. I have gone back and viewed it a couple of times for further consolidation. It's a similar argument for me when students 'do' creative writing everyday. Some of their life experience (knowledge) is limited to home home and more home.

Derek Wenmoth also alerted me to this resource http://www.readingrockets.org/article/21160
on metacognitive strategies in reading. Makes for some compelling reading and I will need to go back several more times myself to help synthesise the concepts outlined in the article.

Thank you for sharing. Tess
