Metacognition…hmm, what does that mean? This course encourages you to search inside yourself. In contrast to the normal question “What do you want to be when you grow up,” this course could be subtitled “the emotional toll of becoming an adult.” You will explore why you make choices as well as who/what else could those choices impact. Each week you will be given a hypothetical scenario to respond to. Each week you will reflect on an interview you conduct.
This course focuses highly on self reflection and introspection while simultaneously thinking about the future. This course emphasizes the affective (emotional) side of education rather than the effective (tests, quizzes, projects, etc.). Together we will explore your responses to the questions...
