Improv’ with today’s news

Task-based activity involving improvisation games and some of today’s news.

Students already have a basic understanding of improv’ and how it works. They have played and performed using each other’s creativity regarding the scenes’ settings (themes, topic, characters, relationships between character, locations, etc. )

Today, students will find inspiration in the news as reported by a random selestion from North American print media, i.e. the front page. Found on NewMuseum.org, many thanks for the amazing resource!

I am hoping to receive students’ consent and (either voice- or video-) record the results. In this way, I could start assessing their comprehension, but also analyzing their understanding and interpretation of different cultural events.

More to come.
