John Tarter, University of Alabama ISBN-10: 0205508014 Tested in hundreds of classrooms, this text with cases, is a student favorite that brings eight classical models of decision making to life, creating useful tools in developing strategies to solve real-life problems. New to this edition: A contingency model of decision making is developed to guide readers to appropriately match decision strategies with the specific problem at hand (Ch. 5). Nine common traps of decision making are revealed and suggestions for avoiding and escaping from these traps are offered (Ch 2). Two dozen new studies on decision-making strategies are added to the analyses throughout the text. New, contemporary cases throughout the text provide readers with the opportunity to learn from and deal with the most current issues in schools, such as violence, curriculum issues, participative management, sexual harassment, and accountability.
