Book Description:
Over the past two decades, the word “metacognition” has become a regularly used part of our language and vocabulary in both psychology and education. Many research articles have been written about it, the conceptualization of this construct has expanded, and conferences abound with investigations and empirical research into various facets of this domain.

This book provides some of the most recent research by scholars from various parts of the world. It includes differing perspectives- some empirical, some theory driven, and some application papers. The book focuses on metacognition and it’s relevance to gifted and highly able students. Many of the papers focus directly and specifically on this; others are more tangential in nature.
