I noticed that the Twitter #ELLCHAT this evening was on using drama in the classroom, and it reminded me that I’ve been planning on writing a post on improvisation ideas — one of my favorite instructional strategies.
Here are a few resources, and please feel free to contribute more:
I described one way I use it in a fairly popular post titled Improvisation In The ESL/EFL Classroom — At Least In Mine. Be sure to check the comments for other ideas, too.
Judie Haynes shared an exceptional resource during the Chat called Drama In The ESL Classroom/Improvisation. It’s a gold mine!
Storytelling Improv Games is from About.com.
Improvisations comes from TEFL.net.
No drama: Improvisation in the ELT classroom is from GERALDINETEACHER.
I learned about Improv from Eric Schildge. It’s a site with lots of…improvisational games that could be adapted for ELLs.
Start A Scene Improv looks pretty neat.
Please let me know if you have additional suggestions….
