Students learn best by regularly utilizing metacognitive strategies to help process their thinking. When students use words, pictures, and symbols to represent their understanding and to help reflect on the hefty concepts that they are presented with in their classrooms daily, they are more likely to retain ideas and apply their learning later. While the focus of this session will be on showing how fine arts teachers can apply metacognitive journal writing strategies in the courses they teach, all attendees will be able to develop skills for utilizing metacognitive strategies in their respective classrooms, regardless of the subject area they teach in.
