Metacognitive Skills and Reading. Technical Report No. 188.
Baker, Linda; Brown, Ann L.
The importance of metacognition to the process of critical reading is discussed in this report. Specifically, the report covers two areas of research: (1) reading for meaning, which involves the metacognitive activity of comprehension monitoring, and (2) reading for remembering, which includes identifying important ideas, testing one's mastery of material, developing effective study strategies, and allocating study time appropriately. The final section of the report discusses the potential application of the research for developing instructional routines to help alleviate some of the more disabling consequences of inadequate knowledge and control of effective reading strategies.
