This paper discusses the need for a mechanism by which to include metacognition
in all aspects of the educational environment. Metacognition, or self-referential
thinking, can be used to greatly empower students to excel in all types of environments.
Specifically it can result in a higher perceived self-efficacy for individuals and groups
which lead to more successes in learning and performance. The research suggests that
there is untapped potential in the instruction of elementary school children in
metacognition. Music, which requires metacognition at a basic level, is an ideal subject
for teaching these skills. The author has provided explanations and templates for
metacognitive warm-ups, community building, and everyday curricular goals.

Lyrics

This article examines the way Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues" is performed by a Navajo group called the Fenders.  The Navajo's particular approach to improvisation in their approach to this song is unique in American music and stems from their whole way of life.
