Teachers Act Up!

Thoughts on Teaching, Language, and Social Change from Melisa "Misha" Cahnmann-Taylor

Improv Theatre & Language Education

This semester I have had the joy of rehearsing improv theatre in language education.  Working with first year and graduate students at UGA, we explore ways to connect “language education” to improv theatre games and performance.  How best to explore what we do with language, than to play with it?!  This new youtube playlist cohere’s examples of these improv games and some notes on how to connect them to themes in second language acquisition.

I hope this is a way to help share the fun we’ve had as well as illustrating the games so that other language teachers and improv theatre artists can have fun making these connections too!
