Seniors: Metacognitive Assignment

Metacognition is defined as "cognition about cognition", or "knowing about knowing." It can take many forms; it includes knowledge about when and how to use particular strategies for learning or for problem solving. This assignment gives you an opportunity to step back and reflect on your own strengths and weaknesses as a student during a hectic and formative time in your life. For this assignment, you will share the following products with your classmates and teacher:

1. A personal and academic timeline with three potential "forecasts". 
2. A five-year "bucket list".
3. A lifetime "bucket list". 
3. The results of your Learning Style Test and your 41-Question Personality Assessment
