SEL - Reasonable decision making
Reasonable decision-making is simply defined as the process of using rational, thought-out reasoning to make a decision.
CASEL sees reasonable decision-making means decisions made in daily living that facilitate the provision of food, shelter, clothing, and health care necessary for life support. The main area associated with social-emotional learning is responsible decision-making. According to CASEL this skill can be described as the ability to make ethical, safe, caring, and constructive decisions while remaining mindful of the consequences of personal behaviour or the potential outcomes that are likely to emerge from different choices.
Ultimately, the responsible decision-making component teaches students to evaluate their decisions’ potential benefits and consequences. It is also about these skills being applied in and outside of school.
