As the performers did their thing on the stage, the rest of the class watched. We found out two things:
- Being on stage wasn't as easy as sitting in the audience.
- Just like watching a football game, audience members tend to do some armchair quarterbacking, imagining what they would say if they were in the improv.
Surprise! The next part of the exercise allowed just that: if students thought they could do better, now was their chance. And they were eager to get started - writing, that is.
Students used the short time remaining to share their writings.
