Activity Overview


When it comes to big life decisions, you can usually find your answer while looking at the short-term and long-term outcomes of each option. Eventually, students will be facing the difficult decision of what to do after high school. There is pressure from their parents, the school, society, and themselves to choose wisely. In reality, they have a lot of time to really figure out what they want to do and they can change their mind at anytime. Their answers may get a lot clearer if they look at the short-term and long-term outcomes.

In this activity, students will visualize the short and long-term outcomes of a major, usually stressful decision. Creating a decision through a storyboard can help visualize what the future may look like. After weighing the outcomes, the decision should be easier to make. Students should be encouraged to consider an upcoming decision, like choosing their career, in order to further connect them to the activity.
