Course Content (Syllabus)
This course is an extension of the mandatory course under the same title and code name and can be only chosen along with it. The main focus of the course is the metacognitive strategies involved in the development of the though and the linguistic awareness in the foreign language lesson. Studies have shown that learning improves (cf Scruggs et al. 1985) when such strategies are applied. The students become aware of their abilities and weaknesses, they get involved in the improvement of their cognitive labor and become independent and self-regulated regarding their learning processes (cf Mastrothanasis 2015: 7). After an introduction to the Flavell’s metacognitive model (1979), at the first part of the seminar the goals, the prerequisites and the basic procedures of metacognition will be presented. Moreover, we will attempt a distinction between the concept of learning strategies and the metacognitive strategies. At the second part, the students (max. 30 students) themselves will experiment with case study of limited extent. Using the questionnaire constructed by Pintrich, Smith, Garcia and ΜcKeachie (1991) as a methodological tool – adjusted to the content of individual school lessons – they will attempt to document the metacognitive strategies used by the school students while they study or do exercises in the classroom. Specifically, the analysis and the assessment of the metacognitive strategies the students use in a Foreign Language course will be carried out on the grounds of a detection and record scale, in order that results will be drawn about the use of effective metacognitive strategies in the German lesson as a foreign language. Finally, the students will work in small teams to analyze the questionnaires according to the theory taught at the first part, so that they present the analysis as part of the seminar and submit a paper.
