    This review is from: Knowing and Reasoning in College: Gender-Related Patterns in Students’ Intellectual Development (Jossey-Bass Higher and Adult Education Series) (Hardcover)

    Baxter Magolda uses exerpts from her own longitudinal research to clearly introduce four “ways of knowing” that students generally progress through during the college years. The quotes (with further interpretation by the author) allow the reader to follow a handful of students and hear them relate, in their own words, the ways in which they make sense of the world. Baxter Magolda further examines gender-related ways of knowing within each cognitive stage.

    The book is well-organized and easy to follow. Much of the text is quotes from student interviews, so, in a sense, the reader is learning about cognitive theory from the students themselves. Easily accessible language and clear organization and interpretation make the book easy to follow. Wide margins leave room for your own notes!

    An important topic… a lens through which to better understand students’ development and ultimately design better practice with students

    This book is just great. It really is a revolutionary book in the field of student affairs. We so rarely think about where college students are in their development because we think they’re adults. Baxter Magolda sheds light on how to work with people in this age group.
