Lesson Plan Title: The Smith and Ragan Instructional Design Process Model
Setting: This lesson will be taught in an undergraduate college classroom with 20 students and 20 desks/chairs arranged in rows, facing a pull down big screen with instructor’s desk and computer.
Learning Objective: Students will be able to recall the specific steps included in the Smith and Ragan’s Instructional Design Process Model for designing and delivery of effective instruction. Given a blank piece of letter size paper the students will be able to draw an exact copy of the Instructional Design Process Model on p. 10 of the Smith and Ragan text including the three main boxes with each box labeled appropriately as well as the smaller boxes within the main three boxes with the correct text written in each box. All words must be spelled correctly and all lines and arrows correct.
Instructional Strategy: The following instructional strategies will be used:
Explain (providing context and clarification of material)
Model the memory task
Group response with teacher
Group response without teacher
Repetition to the state of automatically
Systematic practice and review over an appropriate period of time
Overt practice, verbalizing and writing the memory outcome
Chunking of items into manageable sets
Approach: An expository approach will be followed. Sequence of events will be to introduce material, lead mini lessons, review and practice.
Evaluation: At the end of class the instructor will ask for any questions and feedback from students. After students take the exam in which they have to reproduce the Smith and Ragan Instructional Design Process Model exam results will be evaluated and if necessary instruction will be revised.
As an instructional designer my focus is the design and development of effective online instruction, interactive learning objects, instructional alignment and the visual aspects of instructional materials. Specifically, how the inclusion of visuals within instruction can help facilitate learning.
