Appendix L of this instruction and Lesson Plan development in
NAVEDTRA 130, Chapter 6; however, the following should help the
beginning developer to get started:
(1) The IG is written in two columns, landscape or
horizontal on the page. Front Matter consists of general or
administrative information. Notable among the Front Matter pages
are the Letter of Promulgation page and the Safety page. The
date on the Letter of Promulgation page determines the effective
date of the IG and enables the instructor to determine the latest
revision. Even if there are no hazards in a particular course,
that fact must be so stated on the Safety page. The content of
the other Front Matter pages is self-explanatory from the title.
(2) The Lesson Plan page(s) contains special
information about the individual lessons of the course. Lesson
Plan pages contain the scheduled length of time for the lesson,
lists of training aids, training materials, and references, and,
most importantly, the Terminal Objective and Enabling
Objective(s). Enabling Objectives are listed in the order in
which they are taught.
(3) The left column of the Outline of Instruction pages
are actually titled Outline of Instruction while the right column
is titled Instructor Activity. The Outline of Instruction
contains six elements: I. Introduction, II. Presentation, III.
Summary, IV. Application, V. Evaluation (Questions and
Answers), and VI. Assignment. It is a good idea to note at the
end of a teaching point where the requirements of an Enabling
Objective have been met (E.O. #1, #2, etceteras). Place these
notations on a separate line so that an instructor will have no
difficulty locating the information for test reviews, etceteras.
The Instructor Activity column is used to direct the instructor
to show a video, display a chart, use a certain explanation. It
is also used for instructor personalization by adding the
instructor's own notes. Appendix L shows formats and examples of
Develop the Student Guide/Workbook
(1) Not all courses will require an extensive Student
Guide/Workbook. However, each course should have, as a minimum,
a guide that provides a list of the objectives for each lesson.
Normally, the objectives are listed in Information Sheet format.
Objectives are provided in teaching order so that they provide a
rough outline of the instruction which has been presented. They
also serve as study guides for the End of Course Examinations.
(2) Student Guide page identification can be somewhat
confusing without an explanation. The various instructional
sheets are identified on the first line by type and number within
