TwM Repository: Table of Contents

There are two categories within this collection:

  1. Developing metacognition skills in our students (e.g., promoting self-monitoring and self regulation when developing reading skills, study habits, test taking, etc. in our students).
  2. Practicing metacognitive instruction (e.g., instructors being metacognitive about their own teaching practice, i.e. the intertwining awareness and use of that awareness when making intentional adjustments to course design, instruction, and assessment).
