How does a "Multi-Day" course work?

Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

Class Experience

- To understand that some words sound the same but have different meanings (homophones) and to create jokes (puns) using these words
- To expand nouns to enhance written and spoken language.
- To recognize question words and learn to punctuate "knock knock" jokes
- To recognize language patterns and conversation conventions
- To understand the use of questions and answers to create jokes
- To combine nouns (create compound words) into punch lines
- To write clearly and concisely for comic effect
Learners will be challenged to continue coming up with their own jokes after class, and encouraged to share them with their friends and family.
Learners should have a pen/pencil and some paper or a notebook to write on.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
