Humor, creativity, & innovation are slightly different facets of the same classroom gem. In this session you will learn how to turn your student's natural inclination to make others laugh into a positive & highly engaging classroom assessment tool. We will integrate high cognitive thinking levels with online tools and laughter!

Participants will become familiar with the philosophical, psychological and ""common sense"" definitions of humor and comedy. Participants will analyze and apply our ""competing frames of reference"" model of humor to their own classroom settings so that they can teach their students how to be funny at high cognitive levels. Participants will create artifacts/products that demonstrate their understanding of our comedy/humor model by applying it to their classroom content (ie. Memes, He said-She heard, I do-They think). We will also share our rubric for this approach to assessment with participants. Purpose: To use students natural inclination to laugh and make others laugh as a powerful and relationship/community building classroom assessment.
