Revisiting the Introductory Challenge

The Introductory Challenge in this unit provided a list of various metacognitive strategies that people use, and it asked you to rate your own use of the strategies. If you completed the activity in this unit, you have probably already started work to expand your toolkit of metacognitive strategies. The chart below provides a systematic way to plan for expanding your use of different metacognitive strategies. You can also work with a student to complete the Metacognitive Strategies: Self Assessment and to make a plan for expanding his or her use of one or more metacognitive strategies.
