Student actors love improvs. This one generates a lot of original thinking in a short amount of time. Their focus the thinking of student actors on three words or phrases chosen at random to guide their creation of an improvised scene, we will free them to think far more creatively than if we told them to create a scene about anything at all. Although it sounds counter-intuitive, setting limits actually frees up creativity.
The aims this meeting are: This exercise gives student practice in quick collaboration, decision-making, and improvising based on a small amount of pre-planning
• Imitates real life because it results in organic, unscripted conversations that flows naturally.
• Builds class trust by giving students the opportunity to step outside of their comfort zones and work off one another.
• Encourages attentive listening because in order to come up with an appropriate response students have to be closely following the conversation. Attentive listening supports retention.
• Improves speaker confidence and clarity by putting students in situations where they must adopt a role and be open, creative and expressive in order to complete the activity.
• Requires participation because there is nowhere to hide during an improvised skit or conversation. Increased participation in turn boosts learning.
Mrs. Bosada and her team created improvisations the games. We decided that our students are going to explain and do the rounds 1 and 2 of the instructions and your students just have to guess the names.
To make it easier for your students I’ll send you a list with the celebrities names of the game.
