Contrary to what some teachers believe, a classroom having “pin-drop silence” isn’t always listening, let aside learning. Students might doze off or their minds might wander away while the teacher goes on talking to walls.
Humour helps you win attention, rather than having to demand it. It is one of the most effective tools to engage your audience and form deeper connections.
2.Spreading Positive Energy
Humour helps reduce tension and boredom in the classroom, spreading positive energy and lifting the mood of students. So when you show up, students look forward to your session rather than being stressed.
Positive Energy results in better understanding of concepts, increased retention of information and improved performance of students. With this technique, you can also promote an increased interaction, participation, and problem-solving attitude among the students.
Using humour rather than intimidation will also help develop an increased trust between you and your students. They will open up about their problems and doubts when they are not afraid of you. Laughing together can help create better bonds among students and they will fondly look back on the memories that they make in your class.
