It was originally thought that this aspect of language development did not begin to emerge until about school age, but more recent research has demonstrated that some children exhibit rudimentary metalinguistic skills by age 3 or even younger and that many children acquire a considerable degree of metalinguistic insight about sentences, words, and speech sounds by age 4 to 5 years, before they enter school.

Focus on Exceptional Children, 30 9 , 1-14. Teaching adolescents to be strategic learners. Synthesizing helps the reader to make generalizations and develop opinions and to integrate new information with prior knowledge. Reciprocal teaching improves standardized reading-comprehension performance in poor comprehenders. Kintsch suggests that these cognitive and metacognitive strategies executive processes can and must be taught to struggling readers, especially when they encounter unfriendly texts i.
Use of a recall enhancement routine and strategies in inclusive secondary classes.
