Since the 1998 publication of our first edited volume, Metacognition in Educational Theory and Practice, metacognition has continued to be an important area of research, and its applications to education have continued to grow. The topics covered in our earlier volume included problem solving, reading, writing, self-regulation, technology, and metacomprehension. In the current volume, we have expanded on those earlier topics to reflect the growing interest in the subject. We now include chapters on comprehension strategies, metacognitive strategies, mathematics and science, individual differences, self-regulated learning, technology, tutoring, and measurement.
