  • 1.  Listening and group exercises

    I am a middle school theater teacher and I would like to spend the end of the semester focusing games based on listening, communicating, or relaxation (in preparation for their upcoming exams.) They greatly enjoy activities that are group based. Thanks!

    Hi Kevin! There are plenty of game ideas from past conversations (use the search bar at the top of the page to locate conversation on "improv" or "games"). Here are some past threads that I thought might be particularly relevant:

    Are you listening? Activities focused on listening skills.
    Improv Games Resources for locating improv games.
    Vocal Projection Ideas for helping students speak clearly and loudly

    In regards to stress relief, deep breathing or mindfulness exercises through an app like Calm or Headspace could be useful, or some yoga (tons of free yoga videos here-by an actress/Thespian Alum!). Anyone else have suggestions for Kevin?
