1.  Improv Class/ Curriculum?

Posted 12 days ago
I have taught improv throughout the years, and have formed various improv groups/ performances/ teams for my jr high and high school students. I think it would be a fantastic focus for a class.

Have any of you taught (or presently teach) an improv class as a high school elective?

If so, I would welcome any insight as to the structure and scope of the course.

"The Ultimate Improv Book" (available in the Resources section of the EdTA Store) is a great foundation for curriculum; I use it extensively.

I can recommend "Improv for Actors" by Dan Diggles. An excellent resource for designing curriculum, step by step.
Good luck!

I also built a curriculum around Dan Diggles' book.  It is excellent.
