We have developed an instructional program for teaching literacy
in the use of Unified Modeling Language (UML) modeling software
at the University of Kitakyushu.
In this paper, we show the instructional design of our teaching materials for the literacy and assess their effectiveness.
Our strategies include three levels of instruction, each with numerous step-by-step exercises: 10 basic patterns of UML notation at level 1; composition of the notation at level 2; and creating UML system diagrams at level 3.
We assess students achievement based on a rubric. Our teaching materials are effective.
