• In addition to the research articles you found earlier this week, locate and use two to five additional sources related to your research question or thesis statement.
• Analyze the literature and write a scholarly review of the five to eight sources as they pertain to your question/statement.
• Use the Sample Literature Review and the APA Checklist as guidelines for your writing. The Sample Literature Review is a full review from a thesis paper. For this assignment, your literature review only needs to be five to eight pages (double-spaced, 12 point, APA format). You will expand on this review in your M.Ed. capstone research course.
• Use the Literature Review Template to write your literature review.
• Include a reference page with proper APA style and formatting.

John Flavell first coined the term metacognition (student-reflection) in the late 1970s and the use of the instructional tool has become more of a viable option for many educators and even deemed a best practice in the wolrd of education. As evidenced by the research the universal definition of metacognition/student-reflection would be justifiably be representative of a person thinking about their thinking. Since the inception of metacognition (student-reflection) as a concept, the literature to support the practice as a viable option to deepen learning and understanding has implications across all content areas, not just math. The purpose of my study is to look into the effects of the metacognition (student-reflection) as a strategy and its’ impact on Math instruction and proficiency. My review is organized into the following sub-sections, as the subtopics will also be utilized as priori themes to organize the research process as well: (a) What is Metacognition (Student-Reflection); (b) Metacognitive (Student-Reflection) Strategies; (c) Metacognition (Student-Reflection) Studies (in the classroom); and (d) Summary.
What is metacognition?
John Flavell (1979) divided metacognition into four distinct dimensions: metacognitive knowledge, metacognitive experiences, goals or tasks, and actions or strategies.
