HOSPITALITY EDUCATION CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT PROJECT. FINAL REPORT.
DOMMER, CAROLYN
THE PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT WAS TO GAIN INFORMATION USEFUL IN DEVELOPING PROGRAMS FOR PREPARING PERSONS FOR EMPLOYMENT IN OCCUPATIONS INVOLVING HOME ECONOMICS KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS AND FOR PREPARING TEACHERS. THE INITIAL CURRICULUM IN HOSPITALITY EDUCATION, TRAINING IN TRADE AND PERSONAL SERVICE OCCUPATIONS PROVIDING FOOD, LODGING, AND RECREATION, WAS LIMITED TO PREPARATORY INSTRUCTION IN COMMERCIAL FOODS. SEVEN SCHOOLS IN TOURIST, URBAN, AND SUBURBAN AREAS OF THE STATE SERVED AS SITES. FIVE OF THE SEVEN PROGRAMS WERE ORGANIZED AS PART OF THE ESTABLISHED HOME ECONOMICS PROGRAMS. EACH SCHOOL GAVE INSTRUCTION FOR TWO PERIODS DAILY IN COMMERCIAL FOODS OCCUPATIONS SUCH AS COOK'S ASSISTANT, GRILL ASSISTANT, BAKER'S HELPER, SALAD GIRL, STOCK BOY, WAITER OR WAITRESS, AND BUS BOY. STUDENTS HAD SUPERVISED WORK EXPERIENCE IN THE SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM. THE MAJORITY OF THE 121 STUDENTS IN THE PROGRAM WERE 11TH GRADERS AND OF AVERAGE ABILITY. FIVE OF THE SEVEN PROGRAMS WERE COEDUCATIONAL. LOCAL TEACHERS SERVED AS RESEARCH ASSOCIATES ON THE PROJECT, DEVELOPING AND COLLECTING REFERENCES AND INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIAL BOTH IN THE SCHOOLS AND IN WORKSHOPS AND INSTITUTES. PUBLICATION OF THE MATERIALS WAS ANTICIPATED DURING THE 1967-68 SCHOOL YEAR. THE COOPERATIVE PHASE OF THE PROGRAM WAS EXPECTED TO BEGIN IN SEPTEMBER 1967. MAJOR FUNCTIONS OF THE PROJECT WERE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO INCLUDE TEACHER EDUCATION, CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS DEVELOPMENT, DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS, AND REPORTING. THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES ORGANIZATIONAL DATA, SUGGESTED PROGRAM PATTERNS AND CURRICULUM CONTENT, OCCUPATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES IN CHART FORM, AND LISTS OF PROJECT PERSONNEL AND CONSULTANTS. (FP)
