The use of humor is effective in motivating students, relieving anxiety, and building rapport.  It is also awesome.  We'll talk about why you should bring humor into the classroom, the types of humor available to you, the types of humor to avoid, and more.  Absolutely no giraffes or harmonicas permitted!!  I'll bring a snack to share; feel free to do the same.
