A Look at Humor in Literature and Children's Responses to Humor by Dianne L Monson( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Humor in literature and children's responses to humor deserve serious study. Humor in literature may focus on a character's method for coping with a disturbing situation, problems (such as riddles) that engender sudden insights when things fall into place, or ludicrous characters. Incongruity and surprise also play an important part in humor and occur in many children's books. The tragi-comic development in children's literature may be traced back to oral folk literature; and children's books around the world provide examples of character humor, incongruity between reality and fantasy, ridiculous or slapstick situations, and word play. Psychologists have studied children's response to humor from a Piagetian standpoint, the relationship of comprehension and moral development to children's humor responses, and maturational differences in response. Other relevant research has included studies of the relationship of intelligence to children's humor choices, the types of humor children prefer, and children's reactions to various kinds of humor stimuli. Teachers can carry out their own action research to find out what children laugh at. (The paper lists 51 books and articles, including humorous children's books and relevant research reports.) (Gw)

Influence of Method of Questioning upon Children's Responses to HumorousSituations in Literature by Dianne L Monson( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

To investigate the effectiveness of methods of eliciting children's responses to humor in literature and to determine how these responses are affected by sex, socioeconomic level, intelligence, and reading ability, 365 fifth graders were asked to read excerpts containing elements of five types of humor. Unstructured questionnaires requiring written explanations of what was funniest about the story and structured questionnaires requiring responses to multiple-choice and true-false items were distributed randomly to the classes. Results indicated that children of different sexes, socioeconomic levels, intelligence, and reading abilities responded differently to various forms of questioning about humor in literature. Children of high intelligence more often judged selections humorous, and children of high socioeconomic levels and those of high reading abilities made similar choices of types of humor. Selections were more frequently judged humorous in structured questionnaires than in unstructured forms by more boys than girls, by children of low socioeconomic levels, and by children of low and average reading abilities. These findings suggest that responses to humor in literature are influenced by the method of questioning. This paper was presented at the american educational research association conference (chicago, february 6-10, 1968). (ns)
