Laughter & Learning by William E. Kelly
This idea-packed book shows you how to use puns, stunts, riddles, tongue twisters, bloopers, graffiti, cartoons, games, and puzzles to make learning more enjoyable and more effective.
Among other things, you learn how you can:
add light touches to history, math, and science
make spelling an engaging athletic event
involve students in the sheer fun of playing with language
relieve test anxiety with an occasional joke question
As you put these ideas to work to illustrate points, motivate students, and create a relaxed classroom atmosphere, you'll also promote better communication between you and your students.
