This workshop is an informative and interactive session discussing the place of humour in your classroom. Susan has “lived” humour in her own classroom and has developed actual humour lessons suitable for the grade eight (and up) level. She will discuss how humour works in the classroom and how to solve and resolve problems through humour. This will spill over to the staff room as well.
After participating in this workshop, teachers will:

• Encourage students to bring out their “inner comic” by developing a funny story about themselves.
