The Lighter Side of Teaching



January 2003 | 96 pages | Corwin

A sense of humor is essential for effective teaching!

As educators, we often take ourselves a bit too seriously, so veteran educator and illustrator Aaron Bacall offers a little perspective with these lighthearted cartoons. Whether used as overheads for staff development meetings or as an individual break in a busy day, this collection of whimsical glimpses at teaching will provide a moment to laugh and add a little levity—and poignancy—to your workday.

Intended to amuse, inspire, and reveal the simple truths that surround us, these illustrations are ideal for:

  • Staff training days
  • Conference presentations
  • Classroom lectures
  • Community meetings
  • Internal communications

…and they will continue reminding us that we can laugh at almost anything!

Aaron Bacall's works have appeared in many publications: The School Administrator, Technology & Learning, The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, Barron's, and Reader's Digest. He has worked as a teacher, a principal curriculum writer for the New York City Board of Education, an antibiotic research chemist, and now as a full-time cartoonist. He is a member of The National Cartoonist Society and is on the Board of Governors of the Cartoonists Association.
