When Improv games have a purpose it’s a win for everyone. Having a purpose means you’re not just playing a game at the end of class, you’re teaching skills: team building, communication, collaboration. Students are learning how to work together rather than go for the individual laugh.

The games in this collection are not new and they’re easily googled. 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!
