We’re empowering our educators to bring improv into their classrooms, whether in person or remotely, by offering Act 48 professional development workshops (accredited by PA Dept. of Education) online. We will keep facilitator : participant ratios low, as workshops are designed to be interactive, relevant, and fun.
The main components of our workshops are :
Introduction to Improv as a Pedagogical Tool
will focus on the theory behind improvisation and how it works in the classroom.
Becoming an Improviser
allows participants to play improv games and understand the mechanisms behind why the games work the way that they do.
Direct Classroom Applications of Improv
will focus on how to facilitate games and bring them into the classroom, including as standards-aligned lesson plans.
