Metacognitive Assessment as a Means of Learning and Teaching by By Anowar Zahid, PhD

Yesterday, I posted about my new article on teaching students metacognition.  Today, I am presenting a short article from the Law Teacher, which gives you four short metacognitive questions you can ask your students.

Metacognitive Assessment as a Means of Learning and Teaching by By Anowar Zahid, PhD.

"I teach International Commercial Law."  "However, I find that most of the students do not take part in the interactive discussion."

"Recently I devised a method, which I call metacognition of class.  In this method, after every lecture I ask students a few questions through our university online learning and teaching facility and have them e-mail me their answers."

• What did you learn today in class?
• Why did you learn it?
• How can you put it in practice?
• Do you have any questions?

The above method is simple, but very effective.
