Hi there,
First off – I love your website. As a newbie drama teacher, it has seriously been so helpful!
Secondly, I wanted to let you know that I played this game today with my junior students (grade 5 and 6s) and they absolutely loved it. It took a few minutes to catch on and understand but as soon as they did, they were right into the role playing and improvisation.
The only thing is that I did have a few shy students who did not want to participate. I see above that you did it in a circle but I do drama in their classrooms and we don’t have the space to make a circle. Is there any other adaptation or suggestion you might have to get those shy students up and willing to try it?

Thanks again!

Hi Justin,
I’ve been trying to figure out how you were running space jump that made it work so brilliantly. I’ve found similar problems with space jump such that I try and avoid using it in class.
So I’m wondering how specifically you run the game, and any reflections you might have had since when you posted this. You say that you ran it much faster than usual, but were you the one indicating when someone should jump in? Do they take it in turns or is it whoever has an idea? How did you increase the pacing?

Thanks in advance

Fantastic! Thanks for the rundown.
Currently I’m running a single class of year 7-9 students with wildly differing experience in drama. The subject just runs for a single term, so it should be a wild ride.

Would it be possible to post a video of this game in action? It would greatly help me to understand the game!
