Chalk Talk: How to Use Metacognition to Succeed in School
Thinking about thinking is essential for learning. This type of thinking is called metacognition. Students who practice metacognition, and work toward improving their thinking, will achieve many of their academic goals. Metacognition is taking charge of your learning. This concept and skill is more likely to exist as students progress to higher grades, such as senior high school and college. Some strategies include assimilating new information with existing knowledge, and self-monitoring and self-assessing during the learning process. To achieve this type of thinking, students can create plans for learning. They should identify what they need to know, what they already know, and what knowledge they lack. Students can keep a journal for their thoughts, a place to write down their experiences, mistakes, and other insights. Group discussions about the thought process can be a great way for modeling metacognition. Talking aloud about insights and processes can teach others valuable lessons. One of the most important facets of metacognition is self-monitoring. Students should create a plan for learning, a strategy for attainment, and a method to check achievement.
