Together We Can Improvise, Volume 1
Three Units Based on Stories and Themes for Teachers K-3 and Teaching Artists
By Lois Kipnis, Kim McCord, and Louise Rogers
Book and CD
Grades K-3

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, as well as fables and myths, 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!

Each unit is based on a story or theme, with ample opportunities for specialty teachers and classrooom teachers to work collaboratively. Lessons are complete from warm-ups that utilize drama and music, to core activities, follow-up activities that enable the classroom teacher to extend the lesson.  The focus is on drama and music but art and dance teachers can connect and use these units as springboards for class activities.

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!
