Metacognition is the executive functions skill that helps you “think about your thinking” and “learn about your learning”. It is the ability to self-monitor when performing a task (e.g., doing a math problem, cleaning up after yourself, learning something new).
You can help strengthen the executive functions skill of metacognition by using the following strategy, THINK:
Talk to yourself
“How am I doing?”, “What did I learn?”
Involve yourself in your learning
Notice how you learn best
Keep track of what works and use it
