Teachers will learn how to incorporate improv games and techniques into the classroom as participants collaborate on an expository rough draft. The group will work through a generic writing prompt to find relevance in life experiences, both real and imagined. After brainstorming ideas, attendees use these ideas in creating improvised scenes which will support the expository thesis. At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to integrate improvisation into their writing lessons, motivate their students to actively participate in the writing process, and help students find their own unique writing voices by expressing themselves through performance.
