Review and Analysis of Curricula for Occupations in Food Processing and Distribution. Information Series No. 32.
Lewis, Wiley B.
A review and analysis of Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) publications and non-ERIC publications was made to assess availability and identify major findings, promising developments, strategies, and methodological strengths and weaknesses which exist in curricula designed for preparing food industry workers. Project national figures and trends reveal that there is a need for educational programs to prepare students to enter food serving, marketing, and processing occupations. However, data concerning personnel needs in a specific employment area should be used to determine if there is a need for these programs. While a number of curricula are available to prepare students for a single occupation or a cluster of occupations, improvements are needed and changes will be necessary. Curricula should be developed and evaluated through an educational planning system composed of occupational analysis, program planning, program development and testing, and documentation and dissemination of results. To provide and train the necessary workers, improved counseling and recruiting materials are needed. The bibliography includes ERIC availability and ordering information for microfiche and hard copy reproduction. (SB)
