Clown School Dropout

This kind of behavior might be acceptable if your training to be a standup comic or work at a circus but is probably not helpful when learning how to package glass items…especially when your boss is standing next to you.

Why We Use Humor

We at James Stanfield believe humor to be essential when it comes to education. Many of our programs include humor because it helps students pay attention and remember what they have learned. After all, we don’t want to simply feed students information, we want them to remember what we teach them and use it in their daily lives.  We highly recommend using humor in the classroom and like to spread laughter whenever we can.

Using Humor to Teach Social Skills

Humor = Retention

We believe you learn best when you laugh. By making the classroom experience more comfortable and enjoyable, humor can make teaching and learning more effective, especially for the K12 segment. At Stanfield, we use humor as an integral part of our curricula.

If you as a speaker don’t help your audience to remember your lessons, then you’re wasting everyone’s time. Humor… can help accomplish that needed retention…
