Don't Smile before Christmas: The Role of Humor in Education.
Wallinger, Linda Moody
NASSP Bulletin, v81 n589 p27-34 May 1997
Humor can be a powerful, productive tool to help teachers succeed in the classroom. Humor cultivates spirit, alleviates stress, improves communication, and diffuses conflict. Reviews types of humor (satire, cheerfulness, eccentricity, and sarcasm), discusses humor's classroom uses and benefits, and shows how school leaders can introduce humor into their repertoire of management skills.
