The issue emphasizes decision-making skills. Human beings are constantly confronted with choices in all aspects of life. The five basic skill categories in the decision-making process are identified and explained: (1) Conceptualizing; (2) Sequencing; (3) Creating Alternative Sequences; (4) Evaluating Alternatives; and (5) Implementing a Decision. Included are teaching activities for levels Pre-K: "How Do I Choose?"; 1-2: "It's up to Me"; levels 3-4: "Everyday Decisions"; and levels 5-6: "Town Planners." Each contains a list of student goals and a description of teaching activities which incorporate role playing, reasoning, group discussion, sharing experiences, group dynamics, group decision-making, and oral presentation.
