Use of Goal Setting to Promote Analysis
In the cognitive domain it is important to promote higher levels of critical thinking. “Questioning is a metacognitive tool” (Ishiwa, Sanjose, & Otero, 2013, p. 502). I often forget to promote in-depth student questions from the students. This strategy will help me to set the goal for the reading with a task or problem to answer. When they do ask question they actually indicate analysis.
