The Pursuit of Excellence

This The Pursuit of Excellence lesson plan also includes:

Who doesn’t love French pastries and the idea of hard work? Discover different philosophies on hard work, and the skills of French pastry chefs as the documentary concerning the “Best Craftsmen in France” or Meilleures Ouvriers de France is viewed and discussed. Learners analyze the chef preparation, mentor rolls, and the French philosophies of hard work versus intellectual work, while juxtaposing it against American attitudes. Adaptations are included that contrast the conflicts of the documentary with similar struggles of other cultures and individuals. This would serve as a great activity to explore cultural differences, or expand a home and consumer science curriculum.
