Pollak, Judy P.; Freda, Paul D.
Clearing House, v70 n4 p176-78 Mar-Apr 1997
Examines uses of humor in middle level classrooms and relationships between humor and effective teaching. Suggests that, with the incorporation of humor into the classroom to facilitate rapport building, student empowerment, creative thinking, attention, self-esteem, and socialization, middle-level teachers have the power to become the genesis for real education and a life-long love of learning.
