Instructional Design Scrapbook of Instructional Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :

Much like the Knirk and Gustafson design model, Kemp's model is also small scale and can be used for individual lessons.

In comparing Gange's Nine Steps of Instruction and Kemp's Design Model, several topics are included in both. Obviously both identify goals and objectives and making this information known to the student. Designing and delivering instructional experiences with specifically selected resources that will allow learners to master the objectives. The last is assessing student performance.

The differences between the two are visible in Gagne's nine steps following a sequential model of instruction - do this, then this, and this and end with this. The Kemp Model is a big picture view of instructional design. Here are all the things instructors need to take into consideration but not necessarily in a particular order. Kemps model does however give some guidance in knowing that planning, project management, support services and the summative evaluation are integral parts to the whole design process. Not something that is completed at any one point along the process.

The Knirk and Gustafson Model show a three step process including problem determination, design and development. The first stage includes identification of the problems, lesson organization and understanding learning prior knowledge. The design stage includes developing performance objectives and choosing instructional strategies. The final step in the development stage includes the development/gathering of teaching materials and resources, testing and revision of instruction if needed.

This model is somewhat a hybrid of the Gagne's Principals and the Kemp Model. While it follows a process from stage one to stage three, it recognizes the fact that, like Kemp, some processes so not necessarily have to occur - or should occur - in a particular order. Again, like the two before, all three essential parts of instruction design: goal setting, instruction, and assessment and evident in each. The main difference appears to be the structure and order of the instructional design process.

Section 5 - Sample Lesson Plan Using the Dick & Carey's Instructional Model

Subject Matter and Grade Level - Kindergarten Science

The Model - Dick & Carey's Instructional Model (and Gagne's 9)

The Lesson - Melting Away Numbers in parenthesis refer to Gagne's Nine.


Students will explore the property of water in three states: gas, liquid, and solid

Analyze Instruction

Students will explore the best way to melt ice cubes.

Students will explore the properties of melting snow

Students will explore the properties of evaporating water

Identify Entry Behavior (3)

Class will create a mind map (web) of everything they know about water.

Objectives (2)

Observe, ask questions and make predictions

Observe common objects using multiple senses

Ask questions based on experiences with objects, organisms, and events in the environment

Predict results of an investigation based on physical sciences

Participate in planning and conducting investigations, and recording data

Demonstrate safe behavior and appropriate procedures (e.g., use of instruments and materials) in all science inquiry

Participate in guided investigations in physical science

Perform simple measurements using non-standard units of measure to collect data

Organize and analyze data; Compare predictions

Organize (e.g., compare, classify, and sequence) objects, organisms, and events according to various characteristics

Compare objects according to their measurable characteristics (e.g., longer/shorter, lighter/heavier)

Communicate results of investigations

Communicate observations with pictographs, pictures, models, and/or words.

Communicate with other groups to describe the results of an investigation.

Classify objects and materials by their observable properties

Identify observable properties of objects using the senses

Classify materials as solids, gasses or liquids

Teaching Strategies

Hook: Read the book Water Dance by Thomas Locker (1)

Present each child with an ice cube

Students describe the ice cube and draw their observations

Ask students how long it would take for the ice cube to melt -What will happen when it does?

Ask students to brainstorm faster ways to melt the ice (5)

Present containers of hot water and cold water - ask whether they think the ice will melt faster in the warm water, the cold water, or on the plate (4)

Youngsters perform the experiment (6)

Are students surprised by the results? Invite students to revisit their predictions (7)

Now what? Now that the ice on the plate has melted, what will happen to the ice that's left? Students observe the water of the next days. When the water completely disappears explain they can no longer see the water on the plate because it is now in the air. (9)




Large beakers

Paper plates

Book: Water Dance

Student Performance

Students perform the experiment, sharing their results with a partner

Hands-on experience

Student Evaluation (8)

Evaluate students understanding by viewing their observation drawings

Evaluate students understanding through individual and whole class discussion

Lesson Evaluation

Was the lesson successful?

Did students stay engaged and on-task?

Did the activity fall into the allotted time frame?
