One of my favorite things to teach is table service and etiquette. It so much fun to watch students learn to set an attractive place setting. It’s also interesting to share with them that the positioning of each piece of flatware, tableware, glassware and linen is based on practical considerations and not just a rigid set of rules. It’s very gratifying to see kids go from gobblers to gentlemen and young ladies. It’s instant teacher gratification!
This Justin Bieber song is a great way to introduce the topic of table service and also generate some discussion of the importance of sharing with those less fortunate. I think you’re going to like this one.
Tomorrow will wrap up two full months of the FACS Soundtrack Project. Just a reminder that your suggestions and comments are ALWAYS WELCOME!! I’d love to hear from you!
