  1. I saw your session at #NRocks last year and definitely made the right decision to see you again yesterday. Thanks for sharing some of your ideas, particularly after what must have been a difficult week. I’ll be trying out the metacognition techniques and will report back!

  2. Dear John, I attended your session at Northern Rocks and was inspired to use the method you showed on answering the exam question. I did it with Y13 Chemistry this morning. They have their final exam this afternoon! I pondered and thought what I could call it as a strategy and decided on WAIT. An acronym for What Am I Thinking.
    Thanks for such an enjoyable session on Saturday.
    Iggy Healey
