Improv in the Classroom: Using Improvisation to Teach Skills and Boost Learning (IAH17038)

"Games" are sometimes looked down upon by teachers who overlook the intrinsic value of play in the educational process. Katherine McKnight, Ph.D. shares several creative ways to get students moving and thinking in the classroom. She introduces a brief history of and justification for play in the classroom before calling on several groups of volunteers to help her energetically demonstrate improvisation activities and discuss their application across content areas.

This course was recorded at the Teaching and Learning Conference at the Guy Fenter Co-op on October 6, 2016.
