I would add that I think you'll do better to pick and choose material 
from the Wiki to tell the story as you want/need to tell it. The Get 
Started with Scribus tutorial is going to be too ambitious for beginners 
to grasp, yet you may be able to steal some ideas from it. Feel free to 
download images from the Wiki as needed.

Also worthwhile is to point out the built-in documentation, Scribus 
documentation site, the Wiki, and Scribus list as sources of further 
information. No doubt even with the best presentation one can imagine, 
your workshop attendees will need more help in the future.
