Getting "Writing Ready" at the University of Washington: Developing Metacognition at a Time of Academic Transition
Zinchuk, Jennifer Eidum
Composition Forum, v37 Fall 2017
Within the field of Writing Studies, metacognition is rapidly being recognized as essential for the effective transfer of knowledge across contexts. This program profile describes a pre-college writing course at the University of Washington that builds metacognition, confidence, and fluency in writing. Through program evaluations, student surveys, and instructor feedback, this profile describes how the course has evolved over the past decade, how students and instructors experience the curriculum, and reflections and recommendations for instructors considering introducing metacognitive practices in their own writing courses.
