I chose to use this article as my resource because it lists a number of different motivational techniques. There is plenty of information for motivating students with humour, but also great benefits humour can bring to your students and their learning environment.

This article has great strategies and techniques I can easily adapt to my classroom. I thought it was an interesting idea to add humour to break up lectures, like mini commercial breaks. I also like the concept that you can laugh and learn in the same classroom.

Full citations for the above references are available on my Reference page, listed under Resources.
