Here is a guided research activity. This approach is effective when you wish to teach higher-level decision skills. It starts with the decision that needs to be made. If learners understand the implications, they can make the decision right away. If the decision is the correct one, learners may move to the next micro-scenario and face a new problem that is more complex or explores another aspect of the subject-matter.
If learners make the wrong decision or if they are not sure they understand the implications, learners can choose to review and explore supporting materials to help them make their decision.
