Creative Writing – Restaurant Review


Schooled in Love:  Restaurant ReviewKnow what’s great about teaching a class like this?  Restaurant Review Day!  It gives everyone an excuse to relax, take a couple of classes off, and… eat!


For this assignment, I perused the web, trying to find a restaurant review guideline that (A) I didn’t have to pay for, and (B) had the detail I was looking for.  Unfortunately, I didn’t find it, so it was back to inventing the wheel again.  (It’s below, if you need one for yourself.)  #homeschoolerproblems


Anyway, I called Applebee’s ahead of time to let them know we were coming.  Granted, a TRUE restaurant review would have been more ninja-like, but there’s a fine line between incognito and rude, in this case.  Having 15 people show up unannounced and during the lunch rush would not have been nice, AND we would have been waiting f o r e v e r for a space to seat all of us.  Calling ahead was beneficial to both of our teams.

I had the students take their Restaurant Review papers with them, so they could write as they went.  Having the prompts there was nice, because it gave them things to think about that normally wouldn’t have crossed their minds.

I had the students bring their own money, which included extra for a 15% tip.  Homeschoolers love real-world experiences!

Anyway, it was a great trip, and I can’t wait to do it again!

Here’s the Restaurant Review if you need one yourself.
