The Process of Choice: Introduction, What You Want, Your Resources, What You are Allowed to Do, and How You Make Choices.
Levy, Alan; Geissbuhler, Stephan
These five booklets, designed for multilevel use, focus on the process of choice, and how choice directly and indirectly affects the quality of the environment. The purpose behind the booklets is to explore the process of problem solving, making it clear and comprehensible to the student's frame of reference. The series of booklets all focus on the process of choice and include: (1) Introduction, (2) What You Want, (3) Your Resources, (4) What You are Allowed to Do, and (5) How You Make Choices. The introduction examines the possibilities of choice through text and questions. What You Want explores the first step in the process of choice, through the identification of desires, places, functions, and alternatives. The second step in the process of choice is discussed in Your Resources. Through listing, discussing, problem solving, reading, and viewing charts the resources needed to obtain goals are examined. The fourth booklet looks at the rules and laws designed to protect and control society and the environment, information sources, and avenues of change. The last booklet combines the problems and solutions of the preceding four booklets to assist in the selection of priorities and choices. Readings, worksheets, tables, illustrations, and projects are included in the five booklets. (TK)
