Motivational Techniques (Assignment3, 3100.) Humor.

I selected the web pages listed below on humor in the classroom because they hit the nail on the head. Humor reduces stress and tension, improves retention of information, and promotes creative understanding. The information contained in the web pages describes various methods to use humor in a beneficial way and how to avoid some pitfalls an instructor may encounter. I think humor can help create a positive learning environment and an emotional experience for my students which can be shared with all participants. This will help instruction by creating a lighter less stressful atmosphere.
