8 MEH2.2 The Decision-Making Model
You are an eighth grade student. Since the seventh grade you have been on the Junior Varsity Cheerleading Squad. You recently tried out for the Varsity team next year. You were that you made the team. The cheerleading sponsor informs you that you can no longer band if you are cheerleading on Varsity football nights, since the band marches during during half time at the football games. You have been in band since fifth grade and have really enjoyed being in the band and going on band trips. Next year the band is going to Disney World. What do you do?
Step 1: Situation: I play for the band but I have made the Varsity Cheerleading Squad.
Step 2: Options: Wouldn't be able to go to the trip that the band has coming up.
Step 3: Possible Outcomes: I might not be happy that I don't get to go to Disney World.
Step 4: Values: The decision I make is what I wanted and should be the right one.
Step 5: My decision is to cheerlead for the Varsity Squad.
Step 6: The decision I make is right because Disney World will always be there but cheerleading for the Varsity Squad is a once in a lifetime event.
