Improvisation is about spontaneous creation of a story, scene, or song. In this workshop, learn how to use improvisational activities to help students build and retain knowledge that correlates to core academic standards in ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
Improvisation is built on the concept: ‘Yes, and…’ The ‘Yes’ refers to acceptance-when a student offers an idea, it must be accepted by other students. The ‘and…’ refers to enhancement – other students must not only accept each new idea but also must add something to it. Participants will experience how improvisation in the classroom can improve students’ focus, behavior, and rapport between teachers and students. Use improvisation in the classroom as a fun, flexible, educational and collaborative teaching strategy.
