I like the idea of the lawn first session because there is much familiarization with equipment that needs to take place and there is no need for water nearby. Lawns are usually a short commute away and can cut down on the initial investment of time and you can usually get out of the wind. I would leave a book or video behind and suggest a little self practice. If the person is willing to devote a little time to self practice over the next few days then you know they are serious. Second session can be on the water without fly and try to add a fly and get fishing as soon as possible.
