The amount of front end analysis that is required to begin the design process is staggering. "Designers spend a great deal of effort during the beginning stages of a design project trying to find out about a learner"(Smith, 2005, p.11). As a teacher, this step is often overlooked because of the familiarity one has with his or her students. This process is similar to training camp in football. Each year, coaches must analyze the talent that their team possesses and decide if the strategy from the past will still fit the players. Analyzing the target audience can be much more challenging for a designer who is unable to physically visit the site where his or her design will be implemented. The learning context and learning task did not present as much of a challenge in this particular project, since the designer was able to choose the subject.The strategy phase also mirrors aspects of the game of football. Organization, management and delivery are very important to both. In football, organization can be the key to winning or losing a game. If you fail organize your players in practice, penalties and mistakes usually result during a game. The team that commits the least penalties and mistakes almost always wins in football. Likewise in instructional design, if one does not have the instructional materials organized, the goal of the lesson will often be lost in confusion. Management and delivery are similarly important to both instructional design and football. If a designer fails to have a sound delivery method for the content or mismanages its order, the results will not be satisfactory. In football, a quarterback must manage the offense and control possession of the ball. If he cannot deliver the ball to the receivers, the team will not score. Once a designer is able to merge these three strategies, instruction can be produced. Evaluation is the final role in the process. Football teams are ultimately evaluated on the result of the game. A win is the only positive result. However, win or lose, coaches and players spen hours watching game film to find ways to improve. In instructional design, the thorough evaluation must occur before a win or lose is awarded. Using a rubric that clearly defines what learning objectives were met, a designer can make a judgment about the value of a lesson. Many work samples are needed to provide an accurate judgment due to differences in learner ability. The lessons learned in this course and particularly in this project are going to allow me to provide better instruction to my students and my players. Being able to take off the hat of instructor and be effective in the role of designer is invaluable. Breaking tasks down into small parts and providing task analysis can help learners with little or no prior knowledge be able to learn objectives. The experience I have gained in this course will result in greater effectiveness, efficiency and appealing instruction for my students. <br /> <br />Reference <br />Smith, P.L., & Ragan, T.J. (2005). Instructional Design (3rd ed.). Hoboken, NJ: John Wiley & Sons <br />Part 1: Topic<br />Part 1a: Learning Goal<br />Each student will successfully use Webspiration to create a concept map that demonstrates knowledge of the health risk behaviors associated with alcohol use and how it affects body systems, one's family, peers and the community.<br />Part 1b. Description of the audience<br />The audience for this lesson contains ninth through twelfth grade students from various socio-economic backgrounds. The racial make-up is approximately 50% African American and 50% Caucasian. Many of the students come from homes with at least one college graduate. However, there are some students who qualify for free and reduced lunch. There are also three student who are served in the special education program.<br />Part 1c. Rationale<br />The rationale for this lesson is to teach students to use a technological tool that can help them organize and retain information learned while studying the effects of alcohol on teenagers. This is important, because Health is a graduation requirement for high school student in Georgia and integrating technology can help make class more interesting. This particular tool, Webspiration, can also be used for any of the students' other courses once this lessons is completed in a satisfactory manner. The skills learned while creating a concept map on Webspiration meet Georgia Performance Standards in Health and Technology. Webspiration helps students to engage in higher order thinking such as comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. <br />The chief instructional strategy for this goal is classified as procedural. Because the students will be following steps, which will vary in difficulty, procedural is the best classification. The learners will need to follow steps to operate the software, as well as synthesize the information from the chapter to create their concept map. They will also evaluate themselves throughout the process to determine if they have followed the procedure correctly.<br />Part 2: Front-end Analysis<br />Part 2a: Needs Analysis<br />Part 2a.1: Needs analysis survey<br /><br />Part 2a.2<br />Part 2b: Description of the Learning Context<br />The learning context in WHS Health classes are diverse. There are 100 students from various socio-economic backgrounds. The racial make-up is approximately 50% African American and 50% Caucasian. Many of the students come from homes with at least one college graduate. However, there are some students who qualify for free and reduced lunch. There are also three student who are served in the special education program. Because the topic of this lesson is alcohol, I feel that motivation will be high. This is because this age group is being exposed to parties where alcohol is present. Another factor that generally motivates these students is the integration of the computer. <br />Part 2b.1: Learning context<br />This lesson will be taught in a computer lab with 20 computers. Since there are more students than computers, work will need to be completed in shifts. A rotation will be necessary to ensure everyone has enough time to finish the assignment. The computers are arranged into two rows of 10. The ten students on row one will rotate to row two. The ten students on row two will rotate off the computers and the students who began away from the computers will move to row one. The rotation will occur every 20 minutes, for a total of two times. This will allow for two 20 minute stints on the computer and one 20 minute session with the teacher. The non computer time will be used for planning and trouble shooting. <br />Part 2b.2: Transfer context<br />The students will be able to use the skills learned in this lesson to organize thoughts on a wide variety of subjects. These maps help learners organize, represent, and better understand complex concepts. Concept mapping is useful as a pre-writing activity as well. Additionally, they can be used with a team to communicate vision and gain shared understanding of goals, or to detail the entire structure of an idea. The information on the topic of alcohol can be used to avoid high risk behavior and maintain a healthy lifestyle. <br />Part 2c: Description of the Learners<br />The target audience for this lesson are ninth grade students, ages 13-16. There are 30 students in the health class. Females outnumber the males 17 to 13. All students are able to access the internet and have current email addresses. Students cognitive abilities range between Concrete Operational Stage and Formal Operational Stage. All students surveyed report some knowledge of the harmful effects of alcohol use. <br />Part 3: Planning<br />Part 3a: List of learning objectives <br />1) Students will demonstrate ability to use a computer to access the internet. <br />1a) Students will navigate to once on the internet. <br />1b) Students will sign up for an account and log in to Webspiration. <br />2) After supplantive lesson on how to create a concept map using Webspiration, students will demonstrate the ability to create their own concept map on the assigned topic. <br />2a) Student will use information from chapter on alcohol to create a concept map. <br />2b) Each students map should include at least 5 negative effects alcohol can cause. <br />Part 3b.

Success opportunities>Point out students who are picking up the concepts quickly and ensure the group that with instructor guidance and student practice that each one of them will succeed in making a quality concept map. C3. Personal control>Remind the students that there are more than five negative effects of alcohol to elaborate on and options on Webspiration that should lead to creative and unique concept maps. <br />SATISFACTIONS1. Natural consequences>Point out that students will also discover other opportunities to use their new Webspiration skills to organize or communicate information about other subjects in school or personal interests. >Tell students that using Webspiration promotes critical thinking and will help them retain information for assessments. S2. Positive consequences>Observe how students respond upon completion of their finished product. >Instructor should print out each students map and put it on display. S3. Equity>Allow the students free time with the software to use their new skills to create products of their choice. <br />Part 4. Instructor Guide<br />Introduction <br />1. The instructor gains the learner’s attention in the following way: <br />a. Show students a short video about how Webspiration works. <br /><br />2. To establish the purpose of the project the teacher will: <br />a. Explain to the students the benefits of organizing the information using this software (more interesting than notes, more collaborative, higher level thinking). <br />b. Point out that learners are preparing for the summative assessment for the chapter on alcohol.<br />3. To stimulate the learners’ attention and motivation the teacher will now: <br />a. Discuss how the students will learn to create a concept map on the effects of alcohol and make it unique with the freedom to choose many colors, shapes, graphics available on Webspiration. <br />4. The final step in introducing the project is for the teacher to preview the learning activity by: <br />a. Explaining the following steps involved in completing the project: <br />i. Navigate to Webspiration using the internet. <br />ii. Create an account using their email.<br />iii. Follow directions to launch the software. <br />iv. When a concept map has been completed, check the rubric to ensure all requirement for the assignment have been met. <br />Body<br /> <br />1. To help students understand the process, the teacher will show them a concept map that has already been created using Webspiration. <br />a. The students will discuss the steps and process they used to create the map. <br />b. The students will discuss the content of the map. <br />c. The students will discuss the tools used to customize the map. <br />2. To focus attention on the current project, the teacher will remind students that using Webspiration tools is similar to using word processing software. <br />3. To help students employ learning strategies, they will use the help option provided on the website. They will also explain what tools they will use to create a customized look. <br />4. Students will have an opportunity for guided and independent practice creating their concept maps: <br />a. Sign in after creating an account. <br />b. Launch the program<br />c. Students open a new concept map <br />d. Begin typing content onto their map using content from the selected chapter. <br />e. Students will complete their maps and be reminded to save often.<br /> <br />5. To evaluate feedback, students will perform the following: <br />a. Check the assignment rubric to make sure all assignment requirements have been fulfilled. <br />b. Students will then do one final save of their work. <br />Conclusion <br />1. To summarize and review, end of each class period will be used to allow the students to evaluate their progress, then to ensure that their maps are saved properly. Teachers will support the students with visual and verbal reminders and questioning regarding the characteristics of outstanding maps. After this step and any peer assistance, any necessary corrections will be made. <br />2. To assess learning the following will take place: <br />a. Ability to use the software will be determined by informal teacher observation. <br />b. The teachers will use a more detailed rubric to assess the final project presentation. (See appendix) <br />3. Students will be provided with the results of the feedback from the teacher. <br />Part 5. Learner Content<br />The following learning materials will be used for instructional purposes: <br />Part 5a. Learning materials<br />1) Instructor guide (see part 4)<br />2) Screen captures from the website will be used to help explain the process from signing up through saving. <br />See appendix for other screen captures. <br />Part 5b. Formative and/or Summative Assessment materials<br />The formative assessment materials would simply be a list of students that the teacher could use to make note of effort while informally evaluating them during the independent practice phase of the lesson. <br />The summative material would include the rubric used to grade the final concept created using Webspiration. (see appendix) <br />Part 5c. Technology Tool Justification<br />PC computers with internet capability for each student Each student will work at their own computer station and have access to the internet Webspiration Beta Each student will be able to access and use the Webspiration website <br />Part 6. Formative Evaluation Plan<br />Part 6a. Expert Review<br />My expert reviewer is Coach Gerri Wright ( She has a Specialist degree in Physical Education and over 20 years of experience teaching P.E. and Health. I plan to provide her with the materials on as soon as they are complete and receive them back within a few days. <br />Part 6b. One-to-One Evaluation<br />After presenting this lesson to 4 high school freshman, the learners were asked if any of the materials or procedures were unclear. They were also questioned on whether they felt confident that they could complete the assignment independently. Their feedback was noted along with ideas of how to clarify confusing areas.<br />Part 6c. Small Group Evaluation<br />A group of 10 high school freshman along with an instructor, would be used to conduct the small group evaluation. Student learning materials used would have been updated using the feedback from the One-to-One evaluation. The teacher would follow the Instructor Guide and use the materials to guide the students, as suggested, through the concept map creation process. The designer would observe and note how the teacher and students act and react with the learning materials. Once again, the results of the designer's observations would be analyzed and used to make changes to the lesson. <br />Part 6d. Field trial<br />During the field trial, the same process as the small group evaluation would be repeated with a typical class size of near 30 students from a similar background as the target audience. The entire Webspiration lesson would be taught by an instructor while the designer recorded observational data. The final concept map artifacts would be gathered and analysed, and interviews of some participants would be completed. This should provide the designer with enough data to judge the overall value of the lesson. <br />Part 7. Formative Evaluation Report<br />Part 7a. Evaluation Survey or Rubric<br /><br />Part 7b. Report the results of the expert review.<br />After reviewing the goal, objectives, instructor guide, and grading rubric for this lesson, Coach Wright provided insightful feedback. She suggested that the goal of the lesson include the effects of alcohol on one's peers. This is because the peer group is often of greater concern to teens than even their family. She felt that the objectives, instructor guide, and grading rubric for this lesson were both clear and fair. She made the suggestion of using a short YouTube video in the beginning of the lesson to gain the students' attention. <br />Part 7c. Comments on Change<br />I was very thankful that Coach Wright took the time to provide me with expert analysis on this instructional design and I implemented all of her recommendations. I was conforting to know that she agreed that most of this design was sound and was appropriate for the target audience. <br />Part 8.
