Meta-Cognitive Strategies These are important strategies that teachers use to provide students with opportunities to plan and organize, monitor their own work, direct their own learning, and to self-reflect along the way. Providing students with the time and space to be aware of their own knowledge and their own thinking can increase student engagement and ownership in the learning process. Teaching meta-cognitive strategies to students supports academic growth as well as social growth. Some meta-cognitive strategies you might see your students engaged in include written reflections on work or learning, assessing themselves on a rubric, and making a plan for how to improve learning or revise work that they are doing. This article highlights the importance of developing metacognitive skills and offers ways that adults can support the development of these skills with children.
