Your Manner Matter National Civility Program

South Carolina’s leading protocol and etiquette school and global award winner, The Charleston School of Protocol and Etiquette, Inc., has developed a unique 18 week manners program curriculum that will teach elementary school age children. The curriculum provides interactive lessons and tools needed to facilitate teaching. Manners are such an important part of how a child learns to develop self-respect, character, relationships and leadership abilities. This curriculum will also help children become more self-confident, courteous, and give them the opportunity to master these important life skills. Manners are not just polite actions, they are a reflection of our attitudes. Therefore, when you teach a child manners, you are teaching an attitude, not an action. As a well known saying states, “The manners of today will be the morals of tomorrow.”

An 18 interactive lesson program with topics of:

– Lesson One – What are manners?
– Lesson Two – Why are manners important?
– Lesson Three – How many manners do you know?
– Lesson Four – Hello and goodbye
– Lesson Five – The magic word
– Lesson Six – Giving and receiving compliments
– Lesson Seven – Using proper titles
– Lesson Eight – Proper introductions
– Lesson Nine – The proper handshake
– Lesson Ten – Being humble
– Lesson Eleven – Sportsmanship
– Lesson Twelve – Deference
– Lesson Thirteen – Thank you
– Lesson Fourteen – Telephone and cell phone manners
– Lesson Fifteen – Setting the table
– Lesson Sixteen – How to dine
– Lesson Seventeen – Kind word…kind world
– Lesson Eighteen – Listening

The one to one distance learning method is taught via zoom calls with the mentee.

All hard copy materials are sent to the mentee before the program begins. Then one to two hour calls are scheduled with a shared screen to see all powerpoints and materials. It is the same program materials that are shared during the live programs just done digitally. The program conducted in this format takes approximately two weeks to complete.

It can save costs in travel, travel time, hotel, meals and ground transportation compared to the live program.

The quality of the program however, is exactly the same.
