6.MEH.1.1 The Decision-Making Model
By : Maggie Collier

You promised your grandma you would help her on Saturday, but you get invited to go on a fun trip that day to the other side of the island.

Step One : State the Situation

You told your grandma you would help her on Saturday, after you told her that, you got invited to go on a fun trip Saturday on the other side of the island the same day.

Step Two : List the Options

- You could go to your grandma's and help her, and not go to on the trip.

- You could go to on the fun trip across the island, and not go to your grandma's to help her.

- You could go to your grandma's for a few hours, and then leave for the trip.

- You could not go to ethier and stay home.

- Ask your parents.

Step Three : Weigh Possible Outcomes

Go on the Fun Trip.

- Your grandma will be upset.

- Your grandma would be happy for you and tell you to go have fun.

Go to your Grandma's.

- The people taking you could be upset.

- The people taking you would understand that you already told your grandma you would help her.

Go on Nethier

- They would both be upset.

- They would both understand your situation.

Step Four : Consider Values

- Going to your grandma's would be the better thing to do because you already told her you would help her before you got asked to go on the fun trip.

- But the trip would be really fun to go on too.

Step Five : Make a Decision and Act It

- I would choose to go to grandma's and help her. I think that would be the right decision because you told her you would help her first.

Step Six : Evaluate the Decision

- I think it was a positive idea to go to grandma's and help her clean. It left her and I happy.  It was as successful as I would want it to be too! She even made cookies!
