Metacognition in Literacy Learning: Theory, Assessment, Instruction, and Professional Development

Metacognition in Literacy Learning: Theory, Assessment, Instruction, and Professional Development - Susan E. Israel

I liked chapter 3, on metacognition in the reading process and developing automaticity. I found chapter 5 and the strategies for assessing metacognition in reading comprehension very helpful as well. It made me realize how many metacognition assessments I've taken in my own education and the value of them.

 

When it discussed self-monitoring in chapter 11, I started becoming more aware of my own self-monitoring patterns, which until recently have been instinctive and automatic. I paid more attention to why I reread what I did, why I highlighted certain things, when I stopped to check for understanding the main idea. Being able to consciously monitor my own reading will definitely help me when I need to model a think-aloud. Overall I found this to be quite a beneficial read!

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? - Philip K. Dick, Robert Zelazny

This was such an enjoyable read. The writing style was the sort that pulls you in right from the beginning and completely immerses you in its world. The worldbuilding was truly incredible, and the plot was full of surprising twists. There were some really cool ideas in the story, like owning real animals being a sign of social status and controlling emotions by dialling a certain code into a device.
