Decision-making skills are crucial for success in life, so
prepare your students with Weigh Your Options. Not only does this LAP
explain the benefits of using a decision-making model to make good decisions at
home, school, and work, but it also teaches students an organized way to make
decisions. The LAP provides student activities that promote critical thinking
and include opportunities to make hypothetical personal and business decisions
in their daily lives.
LAPs are comprehensive instructional packages that include all elements of a performance-oriented lesson plan. This LAP includes a student handout (with CopyIT! permission) that includes information about decision-making, a (So What?) discussion of why it's important to learn, and a short (Gray Zone) case addressing ethical issues. The instructor section features a comprehensive discussion guide, complete practice- (short answer) and post-tests (multiple-choice) with descriptive keys, student activities, and more.
As an added bonus, instructors will receive a second version of the student guide—in color and designed specifically for use on electronic devices. This additional student guide is easier for instructors to share with students via email, shared drive, or learning management system and easier for students to view and read electronically.

Bring your discussions to life with our PowerPoint presentation featuring a broad range of graphics and special effects to help keep students interested. This professionally produced presentation consists of 23 slides.
"Use of video to reinforce scenarios given in the different sections can serve as an effective way to engage students and get their feedback. All elements work well collectively to produce effective instruction."
