Unscripted Learning

This is the first time Amazon’s recommendation system has turned up something interesting.

Unscripted Learning: Using Improv Activities Across the K-8 Curriculum

Using improv to teach other things is something I’ve been thinking about for a while. So I may have to look into this one.

I found the chapter on improvising maths here (PDF).

    Hi,

    I am one of the authors of Unscripted Learning and it was fun to have this comment forwarded to me. So glad you thought it was interesting.

    My co-author and I will be doing a workshop at an international conference called Performing the World IV in Tarrytown, NY on October 12-14. The conference brings together an international community of people who recognize performance as a powerful developmental activity for social-cultural transformation. The conference includes educators, artists, scholars, therapists, health and helping professions, business professionals, youth workers, activists and community organizers. If you are interested and would like more information (or would like to pass word about the conference on to others who might be interested), visit http://www.performingtheworld.org.

    Also, I am in the process of meeting like-minded people who are interested in the value of improv and performance for human development, learning, and just plain old fun. I’d love to hear more about you and how you ended up with this blog.

    Thanks for letting people know about the book.

    Hi Carrie,

    Thanks for your comment. Sounds like an interesting conference, but I’m afraid it’s a little far for me to travel (from New Zealand).

    I started this blog because I wished someone else would do it, then realized that no one else would.
