About this Workshop
Teachers are working harder than ever but are struggling to engage their students and build community in the classroom. Join us for a FREE interactive workshop where you will learn fun, hands-on activities to use right away in the classroom to build community while achieving learning objectives.
Our framework draws from the fields of Social-Emotional Learning and Applied Improvisation. Improvisational methods, principles and skills can be used to teach any subject matter. It is an effective, experiential learning framework that inspires, educates, and entertains.
In our workshops, you will gain tools and activities that you can use right away in the online classroom. We focus on strengthening these areas key to promoting engagement, relationship-building, and emotional growth in the online classroom:
- Cooperation and Generosity
- Flexibility and Acceptance
- Creativity and Spontaneity
