  • Making G.R.E.A.T. Decisions
  • Want a beer?
  • C'mon! Nobody will find out!
  • Isn't that illegal for people our age?
  • MAKING G.R.E.A.T. Decisions
  • G. Give thought to the problem
  • Give thought to the problem: I need to stop and think about how to handle this situation.
  • R. Review your choices
  • Review your choices: I have three main choices that I can think of. I could tell on my friend for drinking alcohol, politely refuse to drink, or have a beer.
  • This story is about some kid in a jacket who goes to his friend's house. All is well until his friend offers him some alcohol. He must now use the G.R.E.A.T. decision model to decide what to do.
  • E. Evaluate the consequences of each choice
  • Evaluate the consequences of each choice:Drinking alcohol would get me in huge trouble, so that's out of the question. I'd rather not get my friend in trouble either. I think I'll politely say no.
  • You have to think about an important decision before you make a choice. Not thinking can result in a bad situation later on.
  • A. Assess and choose the best choice
  • Assess and choose the best choice:
  • So, do you want one or not?
  • It's best to list off each choice so you can narrow down what you want to do.
  • T. Think it over afterward
  • Think it over afterward:
  • I was talking about a root beer, moron! It was a joke!
  • Think about what could possibly happen with each choice.
  • Decide which decision has more pros than cons and go with it.
  • Thanks, but I don't drink alcohol.
  • After making your choice and experiencing the results, think about what happened. This is how you'll learn to make better decisions in the future.
  • I think I made a good decision!
