Product Description
In this two part-worksheet, students go back and forth between two things: sharing humorous texts (like images, videos, or jokes) and then reflecting on it.

The first worksheet scaffolds students' collecting of different types of humor (print, verbal, visual, and audio) under different criteria. Teachers can allow a few minutes of class time at the start of each day for students to share these texts with each other.

The second worksheet scaffolds students' reflection on the process of sharing and experiencing humor, and the nature of the texts themselves. Categories include humor and ethics, humor and knowledge, and humor and technique.

From here, you can have students write a reflective piece about humor theory.

Perfect for the week of April's Fools Day!
