Beyond the Joke Book: Using Age-Appropriate Humor.
Bixler, Robert D.
Legacy, v7 n1 p34-38 Jan-Feb 1996
Interpreters who understand differing reasoning abilities of children can more effectively use humor with children, as in the case of getting a school group comfortable with a stranger (the interpreter) in a strange environment (the woods). Humor can also enhance learning and information retention and increase attention span. Development of humor is described in the framework of Piagetian developmental theory. (PVD)
