From small, daily choices to life-defining moments, we are all constantly confronted with decisions.
Valuing and Applying Rationality is about the way we approach these decisions—our mindset, our habits, and our willingness to learn and grow. It helps us to behave in ways that are consistent with our values and wellbeing, form accurate judgments, and make choices skillfully. The Decision Education K-12 Learning Standards highlights specific dispositions that lead us to practice and apply rationality by thinking metacognitively, approaching our beliefs and assumptions with curiosity, and grounding our decision-making in reality.
Valuing and Applying Rationality is one of the four K-12 Learning Domains of Decision Education.
