1. Introduce the tool as a framework for helping them make the best possible decisions – their own decisions.
2. Normalize the use of the tool for all students in your class by introducing it as a universal strategy and not a stigma.
3. Let them know that the decision matrix is versatile and can be applied to many different types of decisions—both at home and in the classroom.
4. Model its use within various scenarios that they either have encountered or are most likely to encounter (e.g., bullying, conflict de-escalation, and choosing between the fun thing and the right thing).
