The Second City Guide to Improv in the Classroom: Using Improvisation to Teach Skills and Boost Learning

Author(s): Katherine S. McKnight / Mary Scruggs

Many people know The Second City as an improvisational theater company that has turned out some of the leading comedians in the country. Now this book brings Second City’s techniques to the learning arena. This groundbreaking group has trained thousands of educators and students through its Improvisation for Creative Pedagogy program, which uses improvisational exercises to teach content and critical skills for learning: listening, teamwork, communication, idea-generation, vocabulary, and more.

The ready-to-use exercises offered here can be used to teach language arts, math, science, and social studies, as well as to build classroom community and develop cooperative learning skills.

Chapters include Why Improvisation Works in the Classroom; Connections Between Improvisation and Authentic, Engaging Teaching; and The Brain Connection. Among the many improvisations are Generating Stories Using Beginning, Middle, and End; Becoming Characters; Math Gibberish Translator; Geometry Walk; and String of Ideas.
