Metacognition Needed: Teaching Middle and High School Students to Develop Strategic Learning Skills
Joseph, Nancy
Preventing School Failure, v54 n2 p99-103 2010
Students' ineffective learning strategies are linked to poor metacognition, revealing that struggling learners have not developed the practical "figure it out" skills to succeed in academic challenges. Well-documented research has noted the positive effect of self-reflective learning on students' academic and personal development. Also, researchers have described that metacognitive awareness can be taught. The author explores these issues and presents practical suggestions that middle and high school teachers can use to help students develop metacognitive skills.
