Why do teachers rarely smile with students?
Expert tips : Humor attracts attention
Humor is often a matter of chemistry. How do teachers find out what their students can laugh about?
Just try. Humor always means the courage to take risks. It is important to remember that professional comedians also work with the “rule of 9”. Nine out of ten jokes are dumped in the bin, so to speak. Do you dare! And if it doesn't work, try something different the next time.
What kind of humor backfires in class?
The science of humor distinguishes between appreciative and derogatory humor. Aggressive humor, ridicule and mockery are not recommended in the classroom. Humor at the expense of others - especially at the expense of an individual student - is rarely advisable. Of course, aggressive humor can also help to let off steam. Because with aggressive humor you can create distance.
And which one would you recommend?
The maxim is: humor that doesn't hurt anyone. Teachers should be appreciative of their humor, make students look good. And of course the teacher is also welcome to poke fun at himself. It can show that even it is not perfect. You don't have to be afraid of embarrassing yourself. Because then you go back to the usual high status. Studies - for example by our humor researcher Tabea Scheel - have shown that uplifting, social humor ensures a better class atmosphere and that students are also more creative as a result. You can also try it with benevolent, exaggerated compliments, for example. It is important that you mean business and remain empathetic. You can also use your body language to signal that you value your counterpart. Humor is also always very useful in attracting attention. You can take advantage of this in class. However, if you have to force yourself to have a sense of humor, you should leave it alone.
