Our lives are filled with decisions—a reality that can grow daunting at any age. How might we, our students, or our children re-approach the process of selecting, feeling grounded when there’s a sea of choice? This session invites attendees to learn techniques for quantifying decisions and empowering students (or oneself!) to increase creativity, collaboration, consensus, and critical thinking through evaluation. Exploring collaborative approaches thy extend across disciplines, each participant will be invited to stretch their own evaluative skills through activities that they may apply directly to their own classes, programs, and life. Approaches will include:
• ALoU — using a graphic organizer to compare ideas
• Criteria Matrix — applying student-generated criteria
• PCA — comparing several choices to determine which is best

Objectives covered:
• to develop a means to determine the creative potential and importance of ideas;
• to select intriguing ideas and apply methods to evaluate ideas

Students will…
• demonstrate and integrate across all content areas the ability to examine problems and proposed solutions from multiple perspectives;
• evaluate the extent to which a strategy addresses the problem.

MO Standard(s) covered:
• Work with peers to promote civil, democratic discussions and decision-making […].
