Marketing and Distributive Education Curriculum Development Report. Final Report from December 31, 1981 to June 30, 1982.
Florida Atlantic Univ., Boca Raton.
A project developed 10 learning activity packets (LAPs)--3 for Recreation/Tourism and 7 for Human Relations Skills. These LAPs were for use in high schools, vocational-technical centers, and community colleges and for teacher preservice and inservice staff development activities. The LAPs were produced by a team of Marketing and Distributive Education Specialists following the guidelines and format established by the Interstate Distributive Education Curriculum Consortium (IDECC). LAP writers prepared multiple behavioral objectives; included a minimum of two individual and two group learning activities, using both in-school and out-of-school resources; listed instructional materials required for teaching the LAP; and developed tests, test keys, a glossary, and a learning manager's guide. The three Recreation/Tourism LAPs addressed the functions of Communications, Human Relations, and Selling within the context of preparing workers for jobs in these industries: Airlines, Car Rental, Cruise Ships, Tourist Attractions, and Travel Agency. The seven Human Relations LAPs addressed the generic functional areas within the current IDECC System's Human Relations category of Personal Development, Professional Development, and Customer Contact. (Following the six-page narrative and a bibliography are extensive appendixes, including the project proposal, competency statements, a paper detailing LAP development processes, check points in writing IDECC LAPs, and correspondence.)
