Cognitive and Metacognitive Reading Strategies

Reading Time: 6 minutes Research indicates that learners are more likely to use meta cognitive strategies when reading online (Azmuddin, Nor, and Hamat, 2017). Cognitive strategies, like rereading difficult sections, adjusting reading speed, or making predictions, are controlled by meta cognitive strategies, such as setting a purpose for reading, previewing the text, and making predictions.
