Humor in the classroom can help you communicate concepts as well as help keep attention focused where it needs to be. It also contributes to a positive learning environment that fosters supportive relationships among students and teachers.

Appropriate classroom humor is constructive and inclusive, and may include:

  • Playful banter
  • Pop culture references
  • Laughing at oneself
  • Laughing with students (but never at them)

Learn more about using classroom humor by viewing the video segment from the new Classroom Management program on PD 360.
