Situation awareness has long been recognized as an important variable in teacher performance. Research to date has focused on identifying characteristics of situation awareness for individuals, not on the behaviors and processes associated with situation awareness. The purpose of this review is to delineate and identify characteristics of teacher metacognitive awareness. In addition, implications are discussed and research questions are outlined that target the measurement and training of situation awareness.The research has examined the positive correlation between the meta cognitive awareness of teachers and the development of two soft skills (critical thinking and creativity) in students.The study involved 846 volunteer Sicilian teachers. Within this contribution, we present as a research result, the “MAT Tool Kit”, a tool for reflective teaching which consists of six stages and aims at fostering meta cognitive awareness in teachers.These stages are based on a class-based inquiry approach which stems from the widely used “plan-do-review” cycle.
