Reflection: Joy Writing Neutralization Reactions, Part 2 - Section 6: Debrief

 

One of the best medicines is humor, they say, and my class has students laughing almost every day. I am somewhat of a comedian by nature, and I love to see people laugh, and I love to laugh along with them. In the Chemistry classroom I have found that laughter is an important component of student success.

Students come into the course with a lot of trepidation, and I find that easing their concerns through humor increases their enjoyment of the course, which in turn increases their learning. In the debrief video I purposely left in the opening part that I said I would edit out. Hear the laughter? The student presenter did not fall into the trap of taking himself too seriously and consequently feeling nervous after what his chemistry teacher just did!
