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!
