The objectives of the study is aimed at implementing metacognitive practice, namely problem solving towards constructing a culture of thinking in classrooms and to capacitate the students to practice self-assessment modalities through the creation of a strategy evaluation proforma on the select classroom practice. 45 Secondary school students from three schools belonging to three districts of Kerala namely Pathanamthitta, Alappuzha and Kottayam were selected for the study.
