A Nudge Is Best: Helping Students through the Perry Scheme of Intellectual Development.
Kloss, Robert J.
College Teaching, v42 n4 p151-58 Fall 1994
This article discusses William G. Perry's model of intellectual development, which posits that college students move through four phases of understanding their relationship to knowledge: dualism (knowledge as received truth), multiplicity (knowledge as opinion), relativism (knowledge as relativistic), and commitment in relativism. Specific teaching methods to foster this progression are reviewed. (MDM)
