The development of metacognitive skills in the human mind has been and is still a great challenge in cognitive psychology. This book provides current research on the theories and performance of metacognition. Chapter One analyzes the nature of metacognition conceptually with respect to its relationship to cognition. Chapter Two studies metacognition and cognitive flexibility in the transfer of learning. Chapter Three focuses on metacognition, self-regulation and feedback for object-oriented programming problem-solving. Chapter Four discusses a learning integrated approach to developing metacognition in school. Chapter Five highlights strategies which can be used to develop metacognition in classical dance classes. Chapter Six investigates the effectiveness of reciprocal and self-check teaching style in promoting metacognition in physical education classes. (Imprint: Nova)
