“Improv to Improve (i2i) seeks to bring improvisational exercises into classrooms as a means to teach social and emotional competencies to students. The implementation of these games in the classroom enables teachers to explicitly teach children an emotional vocabulary, how to appropriately respond to one’s own emotional condition and be empathetic towards the feelings of others, and to hone speaking and listening skills. The games foster a positive community environment of learning and fun. They are aligned with social and emotional learning competencies, WIDA Standards for ESOL students and Common Core Standards for speaking and listening. And they’re fun.”
