Dr. Rebecca Ciancanelli, McNeill Academic Coordinator

Chapter 5, “Metacognitive Learning Strategies at work,” in Teach Students How to Learn: Strategies You Can Incorporate In Any Course to Improve Student Metacognition, Study Skills, and Motivation (2015) by Yancy McGuire and Stephanie McGuire

Many instructors have felt the tension between the way we want students to study for comprehension and critical thinking and the way they actually do. Students often focus on gathering points and expect high grades based on the number of hours of studying rather than mastery of the material. In this workshop, you will develop strategies to help increase student awareness of their learning process, how they learn best, and how to approach struggling students who are not studying effectively.
