This is a hospitality technician class, the paper should be related to hospitality technical knowledge, etc water pipes, electrical operations in a hotel.
Read the book The Demon Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark by Dr. Carl Sagan. Yes, the whole book. There are ~400 pages, and this equates to approximately 4 pages per day if you were to break this up over the course of the entire semester. If anyone is unable to read 4 pages per day, there are more serious issues at hand here. In particular, you will want to pay special attention to chapters 1, 7, 12, 17, 20, and 21…though the rest of the book is also valuable in its own right.
Once you’ve read the book, author an original, minimum 1,500-word paper addressing the following questions:
What is curiosity according to Sagan and why is it important?
What is skepticism according to Sagan and why is it important?
What is humility according to Sagan and why is it important?
What is the state of science literacy in America? How do we compare to the rest of the world?
Why does science literacy matter from an existential perspective? What is at stake if the general public doesn’t understand science?
Why is science important to hospitality? Give examples of important science discussed in your eCourse, and why it is necessary that hospitality professionals have some understanding of science.
What can we do (if anything) to correct the course of human affairs today with regard to science literacy?
