In this un-convention-al workshop, we'll have you write on track for pun production.  Using some class-y wit and old school strategies, your students will go from smart bored to cleverly engaged.  Whether you love puns or hate them, by the end of this session you'll find that they've groan on you. In this workshop, you will flex your creative muscles through a series of activities, hear some eye-roll-worthy examples, and get some tangible takeaways on how to teach these techniques to your students.  Breaking the process of punnery down into manageable strategies like word lists, isolating double entendres, and incorporating them into a concise and convincing narrative, you will have the audience loving - or gratifyingly hating - the wonderful wordplay you’ve crafted. This workshop is offered in English but is applicable to French and international languages.

Target Audience: Middle School, High School; ELA, Humanities, English
