Career Preparation for Hotel-Motel Management and Services. Grade 11, Phase I.
Montgomery County Public Schools, Rockville, MD.
Suggestions arising from a curriculum development workshop led to a curriculum in hotel-motel management and services for high school students which aims to provide them with an opportunity to explore careers in the lodging and hospitality industries. Students will spend half the time in school study of three required subjects and the other half in supervised on-the-job training. Program goals in the areas of basic skills, career exploration, and understanding the world of work are briefly described. The curriculum outline offers student outcomes, suggested activities and procedures, and evaluations for the following topics: (1) history of the accomodations industry; (2) nature and types of accommodations; and (3) organization of operations-front office, food service, housekeeping, accounting, personnel, sales, maintenance and engineering, and law. Resources for each topic are given. An organization chart of a 200-room motor hotel, a description of jobs available in the hotel-motel industry, and examples of lodging industry jobs and duties are appended. (EC)
