This week we took time to learn a few table manners and the basic rules of writing dialogue! Students were given the following task:
- Create a guest list for dinner to include 4 people from history.
- Create the dialogue spoken between the guests (script).
- Use correct table manners at the dinner table.
During the various scenes, students were given surprise scenarios (need to sneeze, food stuck in tooth, drop a fork) and each had to figure out how to handle them according to proper etiquette rules! The outcome was hilarious and I’m extremely proud of them! I would be honored to dine with each of them!
