What if there was one strategy you could use to support students academically, socially, and
emotionally? The ability to think about a person’s thinking is what neuroscientists call metacognition.
With more awareness of how they acquire knowledge, students learn to regulate their behavior to
maximize learning. When students practice metacognition, the act of thinking about their thinking
helps them make greater sense of their life experiences and start achieving at higher levels.
Most educators know that if students reflect on how they learn, they become better learners. Begin
using this powerful academic and socioemotional approach in your own classroom to develop
students into thriving thinkers who are confident, healthy, and adaptive. We’ll discuss the theory of
metacognition, as well as practical strategies you can begin the next day!
