Illinois State Office of Education, Springfield. Div. of Vocational and Technical Education.; National Inst. for the Foodservice Industry, Chicago, IL.
The guide presents key steps in establishing hospitality education curricula, based on recommendations of more than 300 surveyed educators and industry personnel and on information from over 60 proposed or existing curricula. The scope of the hospitality industries is described as including the categories of food service, lodging, tourism, and recreation. Suggestions are provided for establishing the program. Course descriptions (topic descriptions, performance objectives, learning experiences, and evaluations) are provided for the following core subjects: self-evaluation of interests and aptitudes, development of hospitality attitudes, personal appearance, hospitality-core job skills (change-making and record keeping), job analysis, and obtaining, retaining and terminating employment. Information on job-related training for each of the four major hospitality categories includes entry-level job descriptions and advancement opportunities and outlines of courses in the job skills curricula which cover: food service (sanitation, equipment safety, quantity cookery, and serving patrons), lodging (history and scope, front office, switchboard, uniformed service, housekeeping, and law and security), tourism (history and scope, geography, analyzing destinations, required qualities, and travel arrangements), and recreation (leadership, program planning, and practical skills). Opportunities for post-secondary education are briefly described. A six-page bibliography lists references, audiovisual aids, and information sources. (Author/MS)
