“If you aren't able to make a decision properly, you can screw up your life.”

DEF Student

“I think this course will help me think things through calmly. I tend to stress, and now I've learned that you can think a decision through.”

DEF Student

“My name is Jessica Morales and I was exposed to the Decision Making Science when I was going to start my junior year of high school. Knowing how to make a good decision, regardless of the outcome was important at such a crucial time in my life. Through the help and curriculum of the Decision Education Foundation, I was able to make decisions that bettered my life and hopefully those around me.” 

DEF Student Jessica Morales

"It was engaging and fun. I learned a lot of things I can use in my everyday life."

DEF Student

“I delivered the StrongStart program this past summer and it was an all-around great experience. DEF prepared me with content training, easy-to-follow curriculum, and activity materials. The students all started their school year with more confidence in themselves and the beginnings of friendships that have endured into the first semester. I highly recommend this program to other teachers and schools.”

Teacher, Krin Hunt

"This semester, we implemented a decision making process into our economics course utilizing the Decision Education Foundation's decision chain. Students were eager to go through the process as they considered their life after high school and the big decisions they were facing. The DEF's resources made this implementation smooth and the relevance of each link clear. We were able to take the respective steps of the chain in turn and make them relevant for the individual and their personal decision. Rating each of the links and focusing upon the weakest for improvement allowed students to strengthen the quality of their decision. The resources were very applicable to this course which we like to call "Adulting 101." I look forward to using these resources in the future and more fully integrating into with economics curriculum." 

Teacher, Lianna Scholz

"We invited Chris to speak to our entire faculty and staff- 170 strong-- to share DEF's years of phenomenal research and experience with how young folks can make good decisions. We wanted to develop a process beyond just our own intuition and personal experience. He provided an amazing morning session, taking us through declaring decisions, spotting potential decision traps, envisioning decision trees, and then working through a six link chain where we could clearly identify strongest and weakest links. He provided a process with a vocabulary that will allow us to be consistent as we talk with our students about any kind of challenge they face, from peer relationships, to college choice, to life paths. Chris masterfully engaged our faculty, using small group discussions, simple demonstration games, personal but always relevant stories, and quieter reflection time. I am convinced that as a school, we are in a better position to speak into the lives of our students, helping them work through specific issues they may raise, but more importantly helping them develop a decision process they will use for the rest of their lives."

Dean of Faculty and Curriculum, Sumner McCallie

Based on our prior DEF experiences, I was confident using decision skills to organize our 9th grade success class would work well. That the teachers had such positive responses, especially about the value of strengthened relationships with the students, was a welcome surprise.

Teacher, Liz Henderson

“Eye-opening and motivating for me, not to try to ‘fix’ students’ problems, but provide support and framework to help ‘arm’ them with tools to decide themselves.”

Teacher, Kelly Mousel
