Class Summary - Today we discussed how personality can affect the choices we make, stress levels we have and other risk factors and protective factors regarding our health. We discussed why we talk about personality in health class; because your personality will dictate how you deal with choices that deal with your health. We then analyzed our personalities by choosing 5 personality traits that experts would say are healthy traits and 5 that experts would say are things we should work on. The goal is to have students analyze how they can use their personality as strengths to help them achieve their goals. Also, to identify weaknesses that they find in their personality and set goals to either improve or adapt to their weaknesses so that they can still achieve their goals. Then we introduced the DECIDE process. The DECIDE process is a tactic that can be used when faced with a tough decision. Each letter stands for part of the steps in the decide process. D - Define the Problem E - Explore the Alternatives C - Consider the Consequences I - Identify Your Values D - Decide and Act E - Evaluate the Results We then practiced using the DECIDE process. Students were to get a partner and fill out a form with D,E,C,I,D,E on it to make a choice based on a situation that I gave them. DECIDE stands for define the problem, explore the alternatives, consider the consequences, identify your values, decide and act and evaluate the results. Students will be graded on this in class assignment. Today and next class period we will present that situation in class for participation points. They were to use the DECIDE process to think the choice through and evaluate the choice they made. They will then share their answers in the class for participation points. Students should have the acronym and what DECIDE stands for memorized for the test on Tuesday.
