A fun small group collaborative discussion activity - especially for Back-to-School! How it works: Group members imagine they are hotel managers who have the task of hiring someone for a front desk position. Eight candidates were interviewed. Each small group has to go through the list and agree on who they would hire. Bonus: After sharing their final choice, students will learn about the opinion of a real-life hotel owner/manager.
All handouts are included: Detailed Instructions, Hotel Hiring Scenario, Interview Notes for 8 Candidates, Small Group Discussion Sheet, and Notes from a Real-Life Hotel Owner.
