Metacognitive Strategies

Metacognitive strategies are techniques that assist students in becoming self-regulating learners and developing a strong sense of agency in their learning. These strategies empower students to think about their own thinking, which enhances their control over their own learning and personal capacity for self-regulation and managing motivation for learning.

Examples of metacognitive activities include planning how to approach learning tasks, identifying appropriate strategies to complete a task, evaluating progress, and monitoring comprehension.
