As we dive into the realm of higher education, one may assume that the primary educational focus is placed on the teacher-student relationship. Teachers-students alike form relationships, as they embark down the educational pathway. It is this relationship that allows teachers alike to influence their pupils learning. In today’s society you can acknowledge that there are many influences that affect people’s perceptions of learning.
In the Educational Leadership article entitle “The Boss of My Brain”, authors Donna Wilson and Marcus Conyers examines the explicit instruction in metacognition. Researchers stated that “explicit instruction in metacognition puts students in charge of their learning.” It was also stated that “meta-cognition supports learning by enabling us to actively think about which cognitive strategies can help achieve learning, how we should apply those strategies, how we can review our progress, and whether we need to adjust our thinking.” I believe this a unique teaching tool for teachers to implement with their students.

This method makes students the protagonists of their learning process, since they must find, guided by the instructor, and through research and experimentation, the solutions to the problems.
According to the author, Grant Wiggins, teachers and students own educational hubris stands in the way of implementing curricula which requires questioning for acquiring knowledge (Wiggins). While curriculum design has historically been used to instill a laundry list of topics students should be able to take with them into the future, Wiggins presented a convincing argument for designing courses around essential questions in which formative and summative assessments would check for how well the student understands the question(s) being posed. Wiggins view of what a curriculum document is and is not embraces the idea of unlimited thinking and expands the role of teachers and students from those with knowledge bestowing it on those who have none
From back then to present, while improving the system of public education in the United States is the critical building block to the economic prosperity of our nation and its citizens, providing every child with a quality education is far more important than that.
