Authors: Lim, Soo Heng.
Keywords: DRNTU::Social sciences::Education
Issue Date: 2000
Abstract: "Metacognition in Reading Comprehension" is an area that was conceptualised as the focus of this study after consideration of the need for such research. This is an area lacking in Singapore classrooms. Coined by the psychologist, John Flavell (1976 p.232), the term "metacognition is defined as "knowledge concerning one's own cognitive process and products ... [and] ... refers to the active monitoring and consequent regulation and orchestration of these processes". Garner (1987) labels "metacognition" as a body of research and theory that examines thinking about thinking.
