From my own experience, I know kids learn more when they are aware of how they learn best. I would like to learn more about students' metacognition. I specifically would love to talk with someone who has taught their students about their "learning muscles." As I stretch my "learning muscles," I ponder the idea of a project exploring "learning muscles" with students and the effect it would have on their motivation and engagement in learning.
- How would the motivation and engagement in learning change if students were aware of how they learned best, set goals, and had the power to focus on their needs?
