Tell students that you are about to make a very important decision for them about whether they will get a “D” or an “A” in your class. Pretend to toss a coin, then say, “Sorry, it looks like you're getting the D.” Ask students if that's how they would like the important decisions in their life to be made. Tell them that this section will give them a systematic way of making good decisions.
