Summary

A course in decision-making, built around the tiedeman-o'hara paradigm, was taught at a junior high school to test materials. The three essential aspects of teaching decision-making are--(1) learning the language of the decision-making process, (2) practicing decision-making while under supervision, and (3) formulating criteria for a decision. A booklet, "you, the decider," containing relevant theory, activities, tasks, and cases resulting in explicit criteria for choice was given to students. Weekly workshops for teachers were held six weeks before the course began. A sharing of competencies by research personnel, counselors, and teachers took place at the workshops, which were continued through four weeks of actual teaching. Resource materials included the "occupational outlook handbook" and katz's "you, today and tomorrow." results of the evaluation of the course are not presented, although a definite research program has been designed. A copy of "you, the decider" and various evaluation instruments are included. (sk)
