Teaching Decision-MakingNew in 2018, Teaching Decision-Making is the latest addition to the list of Content Enhancement Routines.  The manual contains a set of instructional materials and methods that teachers can use to help students engage in higher order reasoning when thinking about an issue that may have more than one option, or way to respond.
