Learning how to learn is just as important as what one is learning. Learning to learn, or metacognition, is about becoming aware of one’s strengths and weaknesses as a learner. It is about acting on that awareness to change the way one does things. Once the you are aware, you gain control over future learning situations.
Reflection as a form of metacognition or “thinking about “thinking” enables you to evaluate your experience, learn from your mistakes, repeat your successes, revise, and plan. Therefore, you will be practicing this reflective thinking process by self-assessing your own grammar and writing skills – identifying your strengths, and more importantly, your weaknesses that you will need to focus on for improvement.
Post your self-assessment of reading issues that you will need to focus on for improvement based on your experiences with the Week 6 reading, the discussion activity, and your preparation for Exam #2.
