Metacognition refers to how learners think about and monitor their own knowledge, a process which has been shown to improve students’ learning and increase transfer of knowledge.  Metacognitive skills involve assessing the demands of a task, evaluating one’s own knowledge and skills, planning an approach, monitoring one’s progress, and adjusting strategies as needed to complete the task.  Participants will learn how to blend metacognitive skill instruction with content instruction by using strategies such as student self-reflection, instructor modeling of reflection, reciprocal teaching, visual organizers, formative assessments, and more.
