Transcript of Metacognition

Plan, Monitor, Evaluate
Why are you here?
Why college?
You've now had practice with each step of the metacognitive process.
Finish the Assignment
Scenario: You are in Pre-Calculus Algebra and are currently covering a section on transformations of functions and composite functions. The professor has a reputation for knowing the math extremely well but being difficult to understand at times. The professor is also very willing to meet one on one to try to help students better understand the material. While you felt you understood the part of the lecture on function transformations, composite functions went over your head. You have homework on these topics due by midnight the following day. You may try to solve the problems as many times as you like before that deadline. This is also the second to last topic that you are covering before a test next week.

Acing the Test
Scenario: It's the end of the semester, and finals are coming up. Your first final is going to be in Introductory Spanish. Going into the final you have an 87, and the final itself will be 20% of your final grade. Doing well on this test could bump you up into an A, but failing it could drop you into the C range. 60% of the test will be comprehensive and 40% will be over the material covered since the last test. Vocabulary has been pretty easy for you to pick up though you are a bit rusty with ones from the beginning of the semester. Verb conjugation you are decent at although you could use some work on the irregulars. Oral portions have been the most difficult for you. You have one more class prior to the exam that is going to be a review class. The syllabus mentions a few resources to use: MySpanishLab, Tutoring, and the Language Resource Center.

What is Metacognition?
"Awareness or analysis of one's own learning or thinking processes."
So, what does that mean for me?
Thinking about thinking.
Stepping back and examining how you approach a problem and how you could do it differently.
Checking in to make sure you understood what you just read or heard.
Being able to assess how deeply you understand a concept or piece of information.
How do I use it?
Take what you've learned and apply it!
Look over your syllabi for this semester and come up with a metacognitive strategy for each course. Remember to Plan, Monitor, and Evaluate.
Scenario: Your next class will be Western Civilization I on Monday. The week will be devoted to the chapter in your book titled, "The Rise and Fall of the Roman Republic" as well as some assigned primary sources. There are unscheduled quizzes that usually have extra point opportunities for the well prepared as well as weekly online quizzes due at the end of the week. Attendance is taken every day using the i>clicker2 system. You had a test a couple of weeks ago where you did alright, but you felt you really could have done better on the short answer and essay portions. With this in mind, you really would like earn those extra points, which you haven't really taken advantage of so far.

In the Classroom
The 3 Steps of Metacognition
1. Planning
a. What are my goals for this task?
b. What do I need to meet these goals?
c. What has worked for me in the past?
2. Monitoring
a. How is this fitting with my prior understanding?
b. What parts of my plan are working for me right now?
c. Are there things that are distracting me right now?
3. Evaluating
a. What can I change in the future to make this easier?
b. Where were things harder than I anticipated?
c. Which of my goals did I achieve?
