Get Improv 2 Improve Training

Out-of-the-Box Training

Your Improv 2 Improve license includes access to a secure mem­ber­ship area of the web­site. Train­ing videos for each game, game play instruc­tions, a scope and sequence, asso­ci­at­ed arti­cles and infor­ma­tion, and more sup­port your SEL efforts. The basics of KKIT train­ing are woven through those mate­ri­als. A deep­er under­stand­ing of how to take the pro­gram beyond a valu­able brain break and class­room man­age­ment tool is avail­able through our next-lev­el KKIT train­ing, in-per­son or Zoom training.

KKIT Coach Training

On their own, Improv to Improve games pro­vide a great brain break dur­ing tran­si­tion times, which helps with class man­age­ment. We know how impor­tant that is!

BUT it’s also impor­tant to know that the meat of the SEL pro­gram of Improv to Improve is in the KKIT. If SEL is your goal, you need KKIT.

KKITisms are ways to coach dur­ing the games to elic­it the desired SEL behav­ior from par­tic­i­pat­ing stu­dents. Our train­ers teach using KKITisms so that the teach­ers in the train­ing get to FEEL their effects them­selves, to bet­ter under­stand their impact.

Our KKIT train­ing will instill in teach­ers the con­fi­dence and knowl­edge nec­es­sary to suc­cess­ful­ly imple­ment the pro­gram at every grade lev­el from pre‑K on up.

The scope and sequence of KKIT pro­vides a gen­tle guide for teach­ers to use as they see fit.

KKIT Works for Everyone in Your School or District 

KKIT guides the devel­op­ment of SEL com­pe­ten­cies through the Improv to Improve games, so the KKIT Coach can have fun play­ing with their class. The train­ing is ide­al for indi­vid­u­als and is per­fect for cohorts, depart­ments, schools and even entire school dis­tricts. Con­vince your school or dis­trict to invest in KKIT and we’ll refund the cost of your indi­vid­ual program!

About KKIT

The Kath­leen Ken­ny Instruc­tion­al Tech­nique (KKIT) is the instruc­tion­al mod­el for Improv to Improve. KKIT phi­los­o­phy is sim­ple: you are enough. What you bring to the game and the world is enough. KKIT Coach­es and prac­ti­tion­ers focus on what is won­der­ful while gen­tly coach­ing into teach­able moments.

KKIT Coach­es empha­size get­ting bet­ter, not mas­tery, as the goal. KKIT Coach­es treat kids like the kids they are, and make time for them to play and explore and have fun. Our train­ing will enable your staff to do the same.

The long term goal is for chil­dren to find joy in learn­ing at school. Joy in learn­ing leads to greater long term learn­ing gains. Improv to Improve gives the teacher a way to incor­po­rate fun and social emo­tion­al growth into the small bits of time between class­es. These tiny brain breaks, when com­bined over the course of a day, a week, a year pro­vide chil­dren the prac­tice nec­es­sary to mas­ter the social skills and emo­tion­al com­pe­ten­cies to be their most suc­cess­ful selves.
