WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:
The use of frequent improvisation in the classroom gets students thinking and talking "on their feet,” enhances their confidence and ease of communication, and reduces their fear of making mistakes.  This fun, interactive workshop is designed for teachers of beginning to advanced levels of ESOL. Participants will engage in a variety of improvisation activities appropriate across any ESOL curriculum. Presenter Kathleen Klose will draw from nine years of experience integrating theater and improv into the ESOL classroom.

Participants are asked to commit to both sessions. Space is limited, so register early!

PRESENTERS:
Kathleen Klose has been an ESOL teacher and program developer at The Immigrant Learning Center, Inc. (ILC) in Malden for 20 years, where she developed the ESOL Theater Program. She has presented and published widely on the topic of improvisation in the ESOL class.

We look forward to seeing you then!

This workshop is free to staff of all Massachusetts non-profit ABE and ESOL programs.
