Metacognition - 2: "Direct instruction and cognitive apprenticeship may support children's development of metacognition because they are exposed to the backgrounds and experiences of their teachers and peers. Learners can then take those experiences and apply those to their own experiences and learning." (Connors, S., 2007, p.20)
