Description

Recess for Teachers: Practice SEL Through Play (Bay Area)

In this dynamic, half-day workshop, we will provide teachers with a fun, easy to learn, cost-effective approach to social-emotional learning that can be applied to any grade K-12: improv! The field of applied improvisation, i.e. improv training for personal and professional growth rather than for performance purposes, is widely acknowledged as an exciting method for practicing interpersonal and academic skills such as cognitive flexibility, active listening, risk-taking, resilience, and interpreting social cues. Teachers will learn improv games while playing them, and will have the chance to debrief after each one, actively discussing how they can apply in a classroom setting.

Participants will come away with:

  • A toolbag of classroom SEL activities that can fit in any time period, with groups large or small

  • A better understanding of how improv can be used to battle social anxiety and build confidence, promote creativity, and grow as a listener and collaborator

  • A sense of engagement and relaxation. Practicing improv supports group connection, bonding, and relieves stress

This workshop is for K-12 teachers.
