Book Rehearsal for Life’s team of teaching artists to work with your school or community group in the Urban Improv Assembly format to build community and enhance dialogue on difficult issues. Assemblies run 60 minutes, and curriculum is available for 4-12th grades.
Our Urban Improv Assembly model can be adapted for all ages 3rd Grade and up, including adults of any age! Assemblies promote three key social emotional skills:
- Self & Social Awareness
- Relationship Skills
- Pro-Active Decision Making
We use the Urban Improv method, combining improvisational scenes and live group discussions to reinforce empathy and respect, while giving participants the opportunity to learn, reflect, practice and share.
Available Assembly Topics Include:
Microaggressions – (6th-12th grade or adults)
A la carte selection of scenes where characters experience microaggressions (racial, gender, sexual orientation, identity expression, ability, etc) in their daily lives and navigate their own emotions and social relationships around them.
Cyberbullying & Technology – (5-8th grade)
Millie and Faye have been friends since kindergarten. After an argument leads to Millie sharing a private video made for her eyes only, Faye is left friendless with a viral video of herself on the internet.
Bullying & Bystander Issues – (3-6th grade)
It’s Marty’s first day at a new school and things are off to a not-so-great start. The teacher mispronounced his name and now everyone is laughing at him, especially Sam and Carla. Things come to a head when Marty, Sam and Carla are assigned to a group project and Marty and Carla refuse to work together.
