A classroom filled with laughter is a classroom with positive energy. It is a classroom where students feel free to use their creativity to the fullest, time is spent building up, rather than tearing down, and students feel free to try, to fail, and to grow, without fear.

Based on the idea that “If they're laughing, they're probably learning, too,” the book has dozens of tips like these:
  • turning weaknesses into strength;
  • being someone else;
  • having fun with your tests;
  • teasing—and being willing to be teased back;
  • encouraging creativity by assigning an outrageous task; and
  • beat a subject to death, to the point of absurdity.

This book includes many examples of classroom activities that encourage laughter and learning, as well as just-for-fun materials for teachers.

Grades 5–Adult
