Young people LOVE theater improvisation, and so will you. Improv can help you create a cohesive class culture, spark creative writing, and make your students 100% engaged!
Using this 4-page handout, you can explore many Improv WARM-UPS, EXERCISES and GAMES with your students - no previous improv experience required.
The first page can turn into an easy anchor chart of what skills are necessary for improv (and serves as great justification for using improv in your classroom - these are important life skills your students are developing!). Because goal-setting and self-assessment are powerful learning strategies, there are spaces for students to think about ways they want to grow using improv.
The next three pages describe tons of improv activities - try some out as a whole class, have students note their favorites, and let them explore some on their own!
People who try theater improv develop strong listening and cooperative learning skills, think quickly on their feet, get more comfortable taking risks, and learn how to collaborate.
