Description

Class Experience

The primary goal is to have fun!

But we will also focus on:
- understanding that some words sound the same but have different meanings (homophones) and to create jokes (puns) using these words
- expanding nouns to enhance written and spoken language.
- recognizing question words and learn to punctuate "knock knock" jokes
- recognizing language patterns and conversation conventions
- recognizing puns
- understanding the use of questions and answers to create jokes
- writing clearly and concisely for comic effect
- understanding and explaining how to use compound words
- using hyperbole to create tall tales
- putting all of these concepts to use by writing a short, funny story
Learners will be challenged to continue coming up with their own jokes after class, and encouraged to share them with their friends and family.
Worksheets will also be posted after each lesson for any students who want to do extra writing practice.
Jokesheets, lists of all the jokes we covered in class, will also be posted after each lesson for learners to enjoy and to share 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.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
