Metacognition – Pohl’s Infusion Matrix


Pohl’s Infusion Matrix

Next term, my students will be engaging in a research task for the SOSE (Social Sciences) learning area. I was having a look in, Infusing Thinking into the Middle Years, (2002), by Michael Pohl and I came across – Pohls Infusion Matrix.

 I feel that this Matrix will take the students along the path I am hoping to develop in them, that is, one where they can plan activities, “that flow on in a logical manner, at increasing levels of complexity” (2002). This is the example taken from the above resource. Pohl’s Infusion Matrix


About Kate Pill

I am a Secondary School teacher who is passionate about developing students' ability to answer the "who, what, when, why, how, what if and what next" questions over the course of their learning. A "mature starter" (read as - late!) to the teaching game, I am still developing my IT street smarts. This blog will chart my own journey through the metacognition landscape as I facilitate my students' understanding of not only WHAT they are learning but HOW they are learning it. Wish me luck!
