Purpose

Students who practice metacognition (thinking about their thinking) become more aware of themselves and are better able to monitor, plan and control their mental processing, become better problem solvers and become a better judge of what they learn. When students gain a deeper understanding of how they think, feel and act, they become better learners and citizens. This is a short practice that can be used as part of the teaching/learning process. When used often students will internalize the process and they will develop better metacognitive skills.
