Abstract

Metacognitions about what a student knows and how to acquire new knowledge is aided by learning through understanding, not rote rehearsal, faculty student interaction, cooperation among students, strategies to promote time on task, high expectations, and knowledge about diverse learning styles. It is especially important to use metacognitive strategies in the classroom when there are non-native speakers of English present (Ransdell, 2003; Ransdell & Lavelle, 2002; Ransdell, Arecco & Levy, 2001). American university students have become increasingly diverse in ability, background, aspirations, and language background making the use of metacognitive strategies increasingly important (i.e., Hardigan, 2006).
