Metacognitive knowledge about writing in a foreign language: a case study
Umeå University, Faculty of Arts, Department of language studies.
2018 (English)In: Metacognition in language learning and teaching / [ed] Åsta Haukås, Camilla Bjørke and Magne Dypedahl, New York: Routledge, 2018, 1, p. 121-138Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The added value of metacognition has been reported for various areas of learning. Research shows, for example, that metacognitive knowledge positively influences the quality and effectiveness of learning (Hartman 2001; McCormick 2003; Paris and Winograd 1990; Schraw 1998; Wenden 1998), the use of learner strategies and self-regulated learning (Wenden 2002), the development of learner autonomy (Victori and Lockhart 1995) and academic success (Zimmerman and Bandura 1994). The role of metacognition has also been widely acknowledged with respect to writing (Dimmit and McCormick 2012; Hacker, Bol, and Keener 2008, Hacker, Keener, and Kircher 2009; Harris et al. 2009; McCormick 2003; Sitko 1998). In the present paper, I use the notion of metacognition, initially defined as "knowledge and cognition about cognitive phenomena" (Flavell 1979, 906) in order to investigate the potential role of reflection about learning processes in foreign language writing instruction (see also Forbes 2018, this volume, who explores the potential of the foreign language classroom for developing metacognitive writing strategies, and the extent to which these strategies are transferred between FL and L1 classroom contexts; and Zhang and Qin 2018, this volume, for a study on EFL learners' metacognitive awareness of writing strategies in multimedia environments).
