Teaching Reading through Humor.
Shaughnessy, Michael F.; Stanley, Nile V.
Getting students to read can often be a very exasperating, frustrating experience for classroom teachers, parents, and reading specialists alike. However, the use of jokes, cartoons, funny stories, comedy records, and joke books can be used to instill a love of reading. Humor can also be used to improve interpersonal skills, and reading and writing skills. (Included are names and addresses of people and organizations that provide humorous material.) (RS)
