Title:
EFFECTIVE USE OF HUMOR IN A SECONDARY SCIENCE CLASSROOM
Authors:
Kellerby, Darren K.
Abstract:
Students and administrators have often commented positively about my ability to bring humor into the classroom, but I had never made a direct correlation between this humor and student achievement. The purpose of this study was to try and make that connection by using humorous warm-up activities, assignments, and lectures during two astronomy lessons. Initial results showed improvements in student participation and recall, but overtime the humor was less effective.
