Description

Perfect for arts-based or cross-curricular teaching, this collection creates an exciting and holistic learning experience for students through the use of folk and classic tales, including Shakespeare's Macbeth, all brought to life through literature, music, and drama. Creative, easy-to-follow improvisational options that range from short exercises to complete scenes help students become flexible, creative thinkers who are able to take risks, weigh alternatives, and solve problems. Together We Can Improvise unites the goals and techniques of arts and classroom teachers to provide stimulating experiences that will motivate students to read, write, learn, create, and achieve!

The accompanying CD contains recordings of the musical examples. All the activities are fully reproducible, extremely user-friendly, and require no previous musical knowledge. A delightful educational resource for any classroom!
