Accepting the uncertainty of life is an important skill for
everyone to develop.
Embrace the Unknown (Developing a Tolerance for
Ambiguity) teaches students about ambiguity and why it is important to tolerate
it. It also includes step-by-step techniques to develop and demonstrate
tolerance for ambiguity in their personal lives, in school, and in the
workplace. The relevant examples and activities will help them connect this
topic to their own lives.
LAPs are comprehensive instructional packages that include all elements of a performance-oriented lesson plan. This LAP includes a student handout (with CopyIT! permission) that includes information about developing a tolerance for ambiguity, a (So What?) discussion of why it's important to learn, and a short (Gray Zone) case addressing ethical issues. The instructor section features a comprehensive discussion guide, complete practice- (short answer) and post-tests (multiple-choice) with descriptive keys, student activities, and more.
As an added bonus, instructors will receive a second version of the student guide—in color and designed specifically for use on electronic devices. This additional student guide is easier for instructors to share with students via email, shared drive, or learning management system and easier for students to view and read electronically.

Bring your discussions to life with our PowerPoint presentation featuring a broad range of graphics and special effects to help keep students interested. This professionally produced presentation consists of 16 slides.
"Many adults, including myself, have difficulties with ambiguity. I think it is a great skill to teach young people." - Tammie Brewer, McLaurin High School (MS)
