Occupational Preparation in Hospitality and Recreation: Lodging Services, Travel Services, Recreation, Sports, Entertainment, and Cultural Services. Teacher's Guide/Student Materials.
Wiley, Benaree; And Others
Designed to prepare students in grades 10-12 for immediate employment in a hospitality and recreation industry, this curriculum guide also provides a foundation for continuing education in the field. Four distinct components are included, each organized by units, which in turn are divided into activities. Each unit begins with an overview followed by descriptions of objectives, rationale, and concept. The components are Lodging Services (Front Office Procedures, Reservations, Convention Planning, Bed and Board: "Back of the House" Operations, and Lodging Service Resource Information); (2) Travel Services (Use of the Official Airline Guide, Use of Manuals, Making Reservations, Interviewing the Client, and Travel Services Resource Information); (3) Recreation, (Leading Groups, Planning and Organizing Programs, Designing a Playground, Individualized Skill Preparation, and Recreation Resource Information); and (4) Sports, Entertainment, and Cultural Services (Ticketing Systems, Communication Skills, Money Management, Individualized Skill Preparation, and Resource Information on Sports, Entertainment, and Cultural Services). Each of the four components consists of two major parts--resource information with suggested student activities and occupational preparation content. The resource information section provides information about the general characteristics of the hospitality and recreation industry. The occupational preparation section, divided into a teacher's guide and accompanying student materials, addresses the specific skills required for entry-level employment. (HD)
