Teaching Decision-Making Routine

The Teaching Decision-Making Routine incorporates methods students can use in groups to practice higher-order reasoning skills.  Through this routine, students learn to identify issues, analyze options, compromise on a solution, and make an informed group decision.  View the video Teaching Decision-Making for Success in School and Everyday Life below, and download Chapter 1 of the manual to see if this routine is a good fit for your classroom.  Watch Janis Bulgren, the author of the Decision-Making Routine, as she describes higher-order reasoning in the context of Content Enhancement Routines.  If you are interested in additional professional learning opportunities for the Decision-Making Routine or other SIM™ Content Enhancement Routines, contact a W&M SIM Professional Developer below for more details.
