Create an instructional design operational system for an organization

Defend an organizational philosophy for instructional design

One of the major tasks performed by instructional designers is to take data, analyze it and design instructional programs to meet the needs of the client. When given a needs analysis, the ID should
seek to design instruction that will overcome the identified problem based on data in the needs assessment.

Scenario: Students at the Laura Ward Middle School have been complaining about the food served in the lunch room. At the request of the student council, the principal has agreed to investigate
their concerns and try to design a more desirable lunch program. A review of the foods being eaten shows that students do not understand the importance of a balanced meal. While the principal is
willing to agree to change the menus, he wants the students to design a series of meals they would like to see offered but they must be well balanced meals. Therefore, the principal and students
have decided they need a lesson in nutrition that will teach them what constitutes a well-balanced meal. You have been hired to use the needs assessment to design that lesson.

Needs assessment synopsis: Students were tested on Categories of foods where they were asked to identify each food as a meat, grain, fruit or vegetable. The test also asked the students to put
meals in order from the most nutritious meal to the least from provided examples. Students were asked to identify protein foods, carbohydrates and fats. Students were asked the purpose of each of
these types of foods. Finally, students were asked what combination of these foods would be appropriate for a well-balanced meal.

Results: While 72% of the students could correctly identify the food category items belonged in, 15% of the students were confused on fruits and vegetables. Students tended to pick examples of
meals that contained fish or meat as being more nutritious than pasta or meatless meals with little regard to a balanced approach. Only 32% of the students had the order at least 70% correct. Only
29% of the students were able to identify the recommendations of a balanced meal as stated by the USDA Food Pyramid. According to the statistics from the lunch room manager, students ate pizza,
hamburgers, hot dogs, chips and desserts as the most popular items. Fresh fruit, vegetables and pasta were the least popular choices.

Based on the information provided in the Scenario, design a lesson including:
