"Whether in the classroom or on the job, this book will provide its users with the means for focused action plans. Like the food service operations which they are designed to measure, the checklists are organized to follow a flow ranging from the front of the house to the back of the house and up to the top of the house, covering all relevant procedures from food and beverage service to product handling to general administration. Modern issues such as cultural diversity, guest relations, food safety and sanitation, and energy management have been incorporated into the checklists. Another incredibly useful tool is a sample "Shopper’s Report." Usually in the domain of classified information, this one form alone may be worth the cost of the book to students, consultants, and operators. "There is a lot to like in this book, but the section that I particularly appreciate is on how to orient and train new employees. Since checklists specify exactly which procedures should be followed, and often in which order, it is easy to provide new workers with all the information they need to perform their jobs knowledgeably and confidently. The checklists are designed in such a manner that they can be applied instantly. Most do not need modification to fit specific needs of individual operations. "In short, this book contains hundreds of checklists, not rehashed from other sources but intelligently compiled, prioritized and updated to meet the current and immediately foreseeable needs of food service operations. Many operators do not use checklists either because they do not know how to develop one or because they do not have time for such an objective and detailed analysis of their operations. This book is the answer. The operator can simply lift applicable items from selected sections and integrate them into a management system. Once readers become familiar and comfortable with checklists and procedures, they can go on to develop their own. As the author himself states, this is a book that is meant to be used rather than read. I did not just read this book; I devoured it. Food Service Management by Checklist is destined to become a classic." —Edward G. Sherwin Chairman, Hotel-Motel/Restaurant-Club Management Department Essex Community College
This unique book, filled with over 100 checklists of ideas, serves two purposes - the first gives practical hands-on advice to teachers who are looking to improve in areas of their ministry. The second purpose is to help teachers and staff with ideas and activities to improve student/teacher relationships. Another big plus about this useful guide is...with just about every nugget of advice given on teaching, there is one scripture (sometimes two) that the teacher can refer to. The author wanted to stay close to the scriptures. These checklists of ideas parallel instructions and commands given by great teachers found throughout the pages of the Bible. They are filled with solid advice that any teacher can experiment with and directly apply in the classroom setting. This book is not intended to be an intense and complicated training manual for teachers. The style of the writing is very user friendly and the simplified text helps teachers with teaching methods and activities. Likewise, this book can be used for training teachers because of the advice and the accompanying scripture references. You will find a number of "Idea Starters" which are quotes about tried events or activities that were successfully achieved. The "Idea Starters" will help bring teachers and students together and strengthen the bonds between the two. In addition...to help with the teaching process, there is a section titled: "Teaching Comfort From The Scriptures." The topical headings cover a number of modern-day concerns people face, such as depression, anxiety, isolation, and others. Scripture references are given for these concerns. The scriptures can bring comfort to both teacher and students alike. So...there is a variety of information to equip the teacher with classroom instruction and advise, teacher/student activities, scriptures referring to biblical teaching, and scriptural answers to modern-day concerns.
The purpose of the work is to make an initial identification of monographs; state and local documents; pamphlets; broadsides; and other material published in America during the period from 1820-1875. The bibliography is based upon the work of the American Imprints Inventory of the Depression era WPA, but draws heavily upon more recently published national and state bibliographies. It incorporates the theses done at Catholic University, which continues the publication program of the Historical Records Survey. Arrangement is by author. The essential elements of description are given and, in most cases, location of several extant copies are provided. 1846 is the most recent volume in the series.
