Metacomprehension. ERIC Digest.
Standiford, Sally N.
Intended for administrators and policymakers as well as teachers, this digest explores the nature of students' metacomprehension, or their awareness of their own understanding, and the implications of this awareness for reading instruction. After defining metacomprehension, the digest discusses why this awareness is important to the learning process. It then suggests ways that English and language arts teachers can help students improve their metacomprehension. Finally, the digest explores ways in which teachers can evaluate student metacomprehension. (HTH)
