WOW, this was a tough assignment given my circumstances as a non-teacher creating a course for on the job adult learning!! I did the best I could:
I. Provide Multiple Means of Representation
1. Provide options for perception
1.1 Customize the display of information
1.2 Provide alternatives for auditory information
1.3 Provide alternatives for visual information
the worker needs reasonable accommodations due to disability for
auditory or visual impairments to perform their job, then they will
already have been provided in the office.
2. Provide options for language and symbols
2.1 Define vocabulary and symbols
2.2 Clarify syntax and structure
2.3 Decode text or mathematical notation
2.4 Promote cross-linguistic understanding
2.5 Illustrate key concepts non-linguistically
the worker is an adult learner who is already "on the job" they will be
familiar with vocabulary and subject matter specific tools (the forms,
3. Provide options for comprehension
3.1 Provide or activate background knowledge
3.2 Highlight critical features, big ideas, and relationships
3.3 Guide information processing
3.4 Support memory and transfer
we will be using a mock interview (activity with other learners) the
learner will be able to learn the information by a hands on approach
which will guide their information processing. The train of thought
presentation will give them examples and explanations as to what steps
to take in the interview process.
4. Provide options for physical action
4.1 Provide varied ways to respond
4.2 Provide varied ways to interact with materials
4.3 Integrate assistive technologies
since there will be a video, a presentation that is interactive and
they choose the next step, and a mock interview-there are varied ways to
respond, learn and interact in this lesson.
. Provide options for expressive skills and fluency
5.1 Allow choices of media for communication
5.2 Provide appropriate tools for composition and problem solving
5.3 Provide ways to scaffold practice and performance
mock interview at the end of the lesson allows for expressive skills
and fluency. The multi media lesson plan gives various choices of media
for communication. The train of thought presentation assists with
problem solving as well as the mock interview. The interview also allows
for scaffold practice and performance.
6. Provide options for executive functions
6.1 Guide effective goal setting
6.2 Support planning and strategy development
6.3 Facilitate managing information and resources
6.4 Enhance capacity for monitoring progress
The lesson plan has been modified to achieve these guidelines as outlined in II.6.1-4. I added giving the worker a few case examples to read/review.
7. Provide options for recruiting interest
7.1 Increase individual choice and autonomy
7.2 Enhance relevance, value and authenticity
7.3 Reduce threats and distractions
because this is geared toward adult learners that are already on the
job, they have already chosen this “subject matter” and have an interest
in doing their jobs well. Since most of the lesson involves hands on
direct learner involvement there should be little threat or distraction.
Also, the value of completing the tasks is in the reduced stress of the
day to day job.
8. Provide options for sustaining effort and persistence
8.1 Heighten salience of goals and objectives
8.2 Vary levels of challenge and support
8.3 Foster collaboration and communication
8.4 Increase mastery-oriented feedback
the mock interviews involve classmates, this fosters collaboration and
communication. I believe all the other principles are met as best as
possible given the adult learner on the job environment.
9. Provide options for self-regulation
9.1 Guide personal goal-setting and expectations
9.2 Scaffold coping skills and strategies
9.3 Develop self-assessment and reflection
comedic relief in the video as well as the presentation and mock
interviews will assist in providing self-assessment and reflection, goal
setting and coping skills.
