Key Lessons We've Learned
After implementing our lessons, the pattern of student learning behavior was that although students recognize the value of annotation and metacognition, they don't necessarily apply the tools implemented on their own. Therefore, we proposed to investigate the correlation between the students with a strong growth mindset and the students who continue to implement the strategies implemented in the lessons presented.
