Having a sense of humor, learning to laugh at ourselves, and knowing when it's appropriate to laugh (or not) are important life skills for us as social beings. But why do we laugh? Are there things that are 'universally funny'? In this model lesson for English teachers, we look into some of these questions, examining how laughter affects us (and others) in our lives. We will explore both the Listening & Speaking and Reading & Writing strands of the Reflect program, seeing how ideas about laugher can be approached both through oral and text sources. Exploring these ideas can lead us to some interesting understandings about how our world works, helping us develop life skills for working with different people and in different situations. Join us and have a good laugh while learning more!
