Impowerment Improv eBook

The exercises in this resource are designed to create a safe environment in which students can go beyond their old patterns to take risks, embrace failure, be more confident, and be aware of the effects of their word choice. If you already use improv in the classroom, some of the exercises will seem familiar. That’s on purpose; they’re good introductory exercises that lend themselves well to these concepts.

Improv gives you the opportunity to draw attention to these important concepts and talk about them. You can go beyond playing games and take improv to the next level.

But not only do you have all these games in one place, there is an identified purpose for each game, feedback suggestions and questions, game variations, teaching tips, side coaching tips, entry prompts, exit slip questions, and more! It’s about giving every single one of your students the best improv experience from the tentative to the outgoing.
