I Can Make a Choice

New Review

A lesson designed to decrease a scholar's affective filter walks scholars through the decision-making process. Presented with two choices, educators think out loud the pros and cons of each one to model how they come to a decision. Scholars follow the same process, choosing between two or more items. Visual aids assist in the decision-making process.
