Urban Improv for the Classroom:
4th Grade Teacher Curriculum Training

Urban Improv for the Classroom: 4th Grade Teacher Curriculum was developed by a team of fourth grade Boston Public School teachers, Urban Improv actor/educators, and Trauma Center psychologists. The curriculum extends for nine weeks, consists of three parts, and can be incorporated into standard school lesson plans. There are two versions of the curriculum: one serves as a supplement to the standard Urban Improv program for classrooms already participating in the actor-led Urban Improv program, and one was designed as a stand-alone youth violence prevention program for classrooms and schools.

The Urban Improv Teacher Curriculum is easy to learn and implement. Training and consultation is available locally, regionally, and nationally to schools and school districts interested in using this unique and engaging program. You can find more information about training opportunities, as well as a description of the goals, features, and components of the curriculum and testimonials from students and teachers who have used the curriculum, by clicking the links below:
