Teaching Improv Refresher

Was needing some more inspiration to teach improv to 7th graders today and I came across this awesome list from Second City.

Additionally, this great TED Talk:

As a sort of Second City alum, I love his 7 rules of Improv that he also connects to life! 

1. Play
2. Let Yourself Fail
3. Listen
4. Say Yes
5. Say And
6. Play the Game
7. Relax and Have Fun

Finally, and I always share this with my kids, this quote from Stephen Colbert: 

“Well, you are about to start the greatest improvisation of all. With no script. No idea what’s going to happen, often with people and places you have never seen before. And you are not in control. So say “yes.” And if you’re lucky, you’ll find people who will say “yes” back.”
- Stephen Colbert in a commencement address
