Before reading Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest, this just-for-fun quiz based on a real Victorian etiquette book introduces students to the absurdity of Victorian Era manners, and then prompts them to think about whether our own era has equally ridiculous expectations for behavior. A key is included.
This activity can be used with other comedies-of-manners, such as the works of Jane Austen.
I also sell this product as part of my discounted The Importance of Being Earnest Bundle
, which also includes a background PowerPoint presentation, study guide, quiz, and several other assignments.
