Children's Metacognitive Knowledge about Reading.
Myers, Meyer, II; Paris, Scott G.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v70 n5 p680-90 Oct 1978
Children's metacognitive awareness of variables (such as person, task, goals, and strategy) that influence reading was assessed with an interview. Second graders were aware of some reading dimensions but were less sensitive to semantic structure than sixth graders. Relations among instruction, metacognitive development, and reading proficiency are discussed. (Author/RD)
