Abstract

The recent researches show that well informed and well-trained teachers are the most important school-related factor which affects student’s development. So it's very important that the teacher-training programs should train the student teachers well and equip them to satisfy the demands of future generations. The teacher training program should align with the cutting edge of research in terms of its curricular and co-curricular activities. The teacher-training program should focus on the teaching skills of the student teachers. The 21st-century teachers should be able to help students to use higher-order cognitive abilities like analysis, evaluating, creating, etc. The student teachers should be equipped with better teaching skills that are suitable for future-generation classrooms. 21st Century Skills has identified self-directed learning as one of the life and career skills necessary to prepare students for post-secondary education and the workforce. However, educators may not be familiar with methods for teaching and assessing metacognition. The purpose of the present research is to study the effectiveness of a metacognitive approach in teaching skills that affect the teacher-training program.// Paper ID 147
