Manners from Downton Abbey to George Washington’s Book of Etiquette

While some manners of class can seem stuffy and unnecessary, I like the definition of manners that Audrey Hepburn said her mother taught here:  Manners are kindnesses.

From real to virtual interactions, manners can be key to moral and civil behavior and are worth exploring with students. You’ll find some fascinating resources for PreK-12 that are standards aligned on subjects like etiquette, positive behavior and internet etiquette at PBS Learningmedia.  You can also view Manners of Downton Abby right now at the Masterpiece website.
