1 © EDB; D. Halpern, K. Ku, I. Ho, K.T. Hau 1 Decision-making Decision-making Worksheet

2 © EDB; D. Halpern, K. Ku, I. Ho, K.T. Hau 2 Think about it! Suppose your parents think that you are wasting your leisure time. What are some meaningful activities you can do when you are free?

3 © EDB; D. Halpern, K. Ku, I. Ho, K.T. Hau 3 Decision-making Decision-making is not easy! We need to analyse information carefully. Decision-making involves evaluating multiple alternatives. Different people have different variables to consider in decision- making.

5 © EDB; D. Halpern, K. Ku, I. Ho, K.T. Hau 5 Defining the Question Question: Suppose your parents think that you are wasting your leisure time. The Core of the Question: What are some meaningful activities you can do when you are free?

6 © EDB; D. Halpern, K. Ku, I. Ho, K.T. Hau 6 The following are some feasible alternatives: A. Look for a part-time job B. Join the academic associations in school C. Engage in sports D. Be a community volunteer What are the Alternatives?

7 © EDB; D. Halpern, K. Ku, I. Ho, K.T. Hau 7 Not all of the alternatives are equally good or feasible. Are All Alternatives Equally Good? Some alternatives may be more appropriate than others. Lets take a closer look…

8 © EDB; D. Halpern, K. Ku, I. Ho, K.T. Hau 8 Alternatives and Variables to Consider Alternatives (Feasible proposals) Variables to consider (Oppose) Variables to consider (Support) A. Part-time Job Low pay Job nature may not be satisfactory Parents may not support Earning pocket money Gaining social exposure Broadening your social circles B. Academic Associations Endless learning Academic activities may be dull and boring Increase your understanding of a particular subject Parental support

9 © EDB; D. Halpern, K. Ku, I. Ho, K.T. Hau 9 Alternatives and Variables to Consider Alternatives (Feasible proposals) Variables to consider (Oppose) Variables to consider (Support) C. Sports Long training hours Low chance of participating in formal games Good physical training Develop an extra skill Parental support D. Voluntary Work Can have a negative impact on your academic performance if you are too involved Serving the community Meeting new friends Parental support

10 © EDB; D. Halpern, K. Ku, I. Ho, K.T. Hau 10 Variables to Consider Opposition from parents Less time for study Part-time jobs available for teens tend to be dull and low-paid Gaining social exposure Earning pocket money ConsPros I could find a part-time job…

Hau 11 Part-time jobs available for teens tend to be dull and low-paid Importan t Earning pocket money Less time for study (part-time work takes up some study time) Meeting new friends Opposition from parents Variables to Consider Have Varying Importance I could find a part-time job Cons Pros Cons Very Important Quite Importan t Less Important

12 © EDB; D. Halpern, K. Ku, I. Ho, K.T. Hau 12 Taking into account all alternatives and their considerations often leaves you confused! My memory is overloaded… I need help!

13 © EDB; D. Halpern, K. Ku, I. Ho, K.T. Hau 13 Making a Good Decision Requires Careful and Organised Thinking… Defining your question Generating multiple alternatives Variables to consider Weighing the considerations Weighing the alternatives Calculating a decision

14 © EDB; D. Halpern, K. Ku, I. Ho, K.T. Hau 14 1 The Class Today Will… Let you understand the process of decision-making by using decision-making worksheet and its advantages.

15 © EDB; D. Halpern, K. Ku, I. Ho, K.T. Hau 15 2 Demonstrate the Use ofDecision-making Worksheet A.Defining the Question B.Generating Alternatives (Whats the probability?) C.Variables to Consider (What are the pros and cons of every alternative?) D.Weighting the Considerations (Evaluate and score each variable.)

16 © EDB; D. Halpern, K. Ku, I. Ho, K.T. Hau 16 2 Demonstrate the Use ofDecision-making Worksheet E.Weighting the Alternatives (Evaluate and score each alternative) F.Calculating a Decision G.Overall Assessment (Is this decision appropriate?)

17 © EDB; D. Halpern, K. Ku, I. Ho, K.T. Hau 17 Decision-making Worksheet Can Help You to… Define your question Generate alternatives Consider the pros and cons of each alternative Make a decision after careful thinking
