Transparency/metacognition

Transparency allows the studnets to see the thought process behind solving the problem.  By allowing students to see how we solve problems and think things out our studnets can also take notice of their own thought process. Metacognition is thinking about your own thinking and transparency is just modeling this skill aloud. Knowing how to think through situations is important to problem solving so by demonstrating this we make it clearer to studnets. I am hoping that I am getting the concept of transparency right.
