Metacognition & Authentic Assessment
Learning to Be Metacognitive
We believe that one of the primary ways to become the "author of your own learning" (someone who is crafting a life filled with opportunities for deep learning), is to be more metacognitive, to think more about thinking. CITYterm students practice being metacognitive by becoming keen observers of their own cognitive processes and strengths. Through practice, frequent self-assessment and feedback from peers, teachers and others, student can and build strength in this area.
