Maybe, to make it as "interactive" as possible, you could begin by showing
them a dozen or so "rules", some of which could be the dogme (or Lucy) ones,
and some not, and ask them to decide in groups which they would reject and
to justify that choice. I'm sure you could bung in a few from well-known
Teacher's Books which merit assignment to the scrap heap.
From then on to general discussion and, at the end, some reportage and
suggested illustrative activities.
As feedback on the session, perhaps you could have someone sit at the the
front and assess from facial expressions how many look at you as if you
really were the elephant man?
