ED 203 Power of Play: Improvisation and Learning

This course investigates the intersection between Improvisation and Education and is relevant for students preparing for careers as teachers in elementary or secondary education, or as teaching artists in professional theaters, schools and communities. In this course we will investigate how the theater process (improvisation-rehearsal- performance) can be an inquiry-based model for teachers as well as how theater games and exercises can be adapted to explore a non-arts curriculum. No previous theater courses are necessary but most of our learning will be by doing, so students must be willing to participate in all improvisations and be prepared to act in a final project presented for children.

No field experience required.

Note: Can count toward the Education and Theater Arts majors and minors.
