This is a great way to connect the reluctant learner to the purpose of work ethic in the real world. Students will have fun acting out the script and the teacher will use this as a point of reference to reinforce the reason students need to practice strong work ethic and attain good habits early in life. Students will learn that "Your behavior affects everyone else!" because in this script the owners of the diner have poor work ethic and low standards of cleanliness, which affects their customers. This is a great activity to use in your literature centers, or as a mini-lesson to teach work ethic!
