Teach the Earth the portal for Earth Education
From NAGT's On the Cutting Edge Collection
We are creating a collection of teaching materials that highlight the
role of metacognition in student learning. From the materials
that you provide below, we will create a web page describing your
contribution to the Metacognition activity
collection (opens in a new window). Please complete all fields. You are encouraged to upload
files to accompany your example.
You retain all rights to your contributed work and are responsible
for referencing other people's work and for obtaining permission to
use any copyrighted material within your contribution. By
contributing your work to this web site, you give On the Cutting
Edge a license for non-commercial distribution of the material,
this kind of Creative
Commons license (opens in a new window).
This form and the file uploads must be completed in a single
session. Leaving the page erases the data. You cannot submit a
partially completed form and return to it later.
Please note that, after submission, our support staff must do some
preparatory work to catalog and post these resources. We hope to
make your contributions "live" within one to two weeks of your
submission. Thank you in advance for making this contribution!
Please provide a short description of your activity or assignment and its outcomes. Be sure to include essential key words or index terms to help users find resources using our search/browse functions. You will find a sample description below.
Reading reflections are designed to encourage students to complete readings before coming to class, to reflect more deeply on the content of the reading, to make personal meaning from the meaning, and to develop their metacognitive skills for lifelong learning. The reflections consist of three questions: (1) What is the main point of the reading?, (2) What information did you find surprising? Why?, and (3) What did you find confusing? Why? Students submit short responses to two of three questions prior to coming to class.
We encourage you to upload files with the full activity description or actual assignment, instructor's notes, and a solution set. You may also upload additional supporting materials such as grading rubrics, data files, images, and sample student work. Please be sure that your files are smaller than 20 Mb. We hope that your files will, in fact, be much smaller than this!
Please be sure to assign titles to your documents that clearly identify their contents and purposes. Please note that your files will be uploaded when you submit this form.
