A Metacognitive Pedagogy: The River Summer Project
Son, Lisa K.; Kenna, Timothy; Pfirman, Stephanie
College Quarterly, v10 n2 p1-22 Spr 2007
This article describes River Summer, an interdisciplinary, field project on the Hudson River. Using cognitive data, the team aimed to design an experience that fostered an environment implementing strategies that improve learning. The participants, 40 faculty members from 24 institutions who acted as teachers, students, or both, boarded the Seawolf, the vessel on which the course was situated. River's objectives included lessons for analyzing various aspects of and promoting awareness for the Hudson and its watershed as a natural and cultural environment. Most importantly, this paper illustrates River's incorporation of metacognitive strategies as an effective teaching and learning tool. (Contains 2 tables and 3 figures.)
