  1. Sequence of Objectives: Clusters to Identify Instructional Goal Steps
    1. Cluster A: The learners will identify the reasons why wearing a mask is important (Objectives: 1.1-4.2.a)
    2. Cluster B: The learners will demonstrate the proper usage of a mask (1- 1.2.c)
  2. Approach to Learning Components
    • Pre-instructional activities
      • Gain Attention: Introduction by HR. Students will be shown a brief set of Power Point slides which will incorporate a short video on CDC data and guidelines. These slides and video will reinforce the importance of mask-wearing and the seriousness of following CDC guidelines for the workplace.
      • Objectives: The Power Point slides and the video will be a general overview of all objectives that we will cover in the class instruction.
      • Entry Skills: This is baseline safety training so no required entry skills.
      • Student Grouping and Media Selections: Lecture with Power Point slides and video from the internet (downloaded or streamed). Students will also have their Student Guidebook to follow along.
    • Assessment
      • Pre-test/Post-test: We will administer the same test to learners at the beginning and end of the training in order to evaluate a change in learner knowledge of the subject matter. Additionally, we are requiring an 85% pass rate on the post-test so this will set the tone for the class as well as set clear expectations. The pre-test will also provide an overview of all objectives.
      • Student Groupings and Media Selection: The pre-test/post-test will be administered on paper but we will also give the students the option to take it orally.
      • Follow-Through:
        • Memory Aid: The students will participate in a hands-on engagement activity using BINGO or similar paper-based activity which will allow them to leverage common COVID vocabulary. Additionally, students will follow along throughout the entire class with their Student Guidebook.
        • Transfer: Any issues of non-compliance will be subject to potential discipline which may include the learner having to repeat the course as well as other company mandated disciplinary actions. Managers will also continue to give training to their departments as needed.
        • Student Groupings and Media Selection: Live lecture with class size approximately 20-30 learners, Power Point projected onto screen at front of classroom, paper-based BINGO or other training game, paper-based Student Guidebook, paper-based pre-test and post-test.
  3. Performance Objectives
    • Cluster A: The learners will identify the reasons why wearing a mask is important (Objectives: 1.1-4.2.a)
      • Student Grouping and Media Selection: Objectives: 1.1-4.2.a, Lecture-based with Power Point, Small-Group discussions, BINGO game or other training game, Student Guidebook.
      • Content Presentation: Interactive live lecture to be complemented with small group discussions and interactive training materials such as the game and the Student Guidebook. The Student Guidebook will include fill-in the blank follow along activities as well as short answer and essay style questions. Some of these portions of the Guidebook will be informed by course content and some will be student generated.
      • Student Participation:
        • Practice Items and Activities: Students will participate in an interactive live lecture with the instructor and will participate with the other students during small group discussions. Instructor will require students to actively participate by responding verbally and engaging with written activities. (*For those who need accommodations, alternatives will be offered.)
        • Feedback: Students will receive verbal feedback during the instruction and also will receive more formal feedback after they take the post-test.
    • Cluster B: The learners will demonstrate the proper usage of a mask (1- 1.2.c)
      • Student Grouping and Media Selection: Objectives 1-1.2.c, Small groups, Masks will be available to students for the activity, Power Point slides to visual show proper masks and proper wear of masks.
      • Content Presentation: Instructor will facilitate a prepared overview engaging the audience to maintain attention with questions and/or applicable stories. The instructor will use the Power Point slides from above but will also demonstrate proper usage either by using a mannequin or by putting masks on over their mask.
      • Student Participation:
        • Practice Items and Activities: Students will work in small groups to share the work that they’ve done in their activity book and evaluate their fellow group members mask wearing.
        • Feedback: Students will receive feedback on mask wearing from the instructor and from the other learners in their small group. Learners will also share their progress in the Student Guidebook.
