Improv Introduced to LINC Childminders

Not Just Fun & Games: Improv as a Tool for Development and Integration

That’s what attendees of Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s LINC Childminders Conference are going to learn about this October 28 and 29. It’s all part of my mission to bring the lessons of improvisation to everybody, everywhere.

Workshop Description:

Improvisation can be a useful tool for educating newcomers and creating a positive environment, because improv games provide a creative space where there are no mistakes. Gibberish and clowning, for example, are playful ways for students to communicate with each other, no matter what their current language level. This presentation, with interactive examples of improv in action, will teach participants how to use this fun and positive approach to help children express emotions, improve language skills, problem-solve, develop imagination, build friendships, and increase their self-esteem.
