Metacognition refers to “thinking about thinking”. It is the ability to control thinking processes through various strategies, such as organizing, monitoring and adapting. Additionally, it is the learners’ ability to reflect upon the tasks or processes students undertake and to select and utilize the appropriate strategies necessary for academic achievement. Explicitly teaching learners strategies for metacognition has been shown to lead to improvements in attainment. It also encompasses the regulation of thoughts–the ability to change them. It is a step further than simple awareness of thought processes, incorporating the ability to alter thoughts and behaviours.
