Student Decision Making: Improving the School for All Students.
Brion-Meisels, Steven; And Others
The paper focuses on the role of decision making to develop social skills in adolescents with learning or behavior problems and describes a project to implement such a decision making model. The paper begins by tracing some of the crucial issues of adolescence and then describes the Adolescent Issues Project which has produced a curriculum focusing on decisions about drug use, work, adolescent development and sexuality, juvenile law, and government. Core skills in the decision making process (including social perspective-taking and alternative thinking) are reviewed, and applications are described such as use of a decision making approach to the classroom, counseling and discipline, student governance, parent involvement, and student assessment. Evaluation data point to indications of success. (CL)
