Comedy can be used to get people on your side, break a tension or make a point.
It can be an invaluable educational tool.
Using humour allows educators to engage students in an original, dynamic and subversive way without being condescending or patronising.
Comedy allows teachers to:
- Get important points across
- Challenge difficult students
- Engage students with literacy difficulties
- Address awkward or embarrassing issues
- Provide memorable learning experiences
Teachers who have discovered comedy as an educative tool will universally attest to its success.
Using comedy improvisation and role-play our new workshops are tailor-made for schools to explore three mains strands and subject areas with students:
- Comedy workshops for expressive arts subjects such as Performing Arts, Drama, English and Media Studies
- Comedy workshops in PSHE subject areas such as Careers, Diversity & Community, Personal Finance, Online Safety, Personal & social skills and Sex & relationship education
- Curriculum mapping workshops for vocational and academic subjects.
Piloted in Westminster in 2011, our workshops are for primary and secondary schools. They are open to any commissioning school from a 2 hour session during class-time /after-school, to a full day with follow up events. Our facilitators use video as a tool during the workshops and participants can post their comedy scenes on our website to use and share.
Each session is designed for different age ranges, from 5-18, for different group sizes and for different subjects.
