Secondary Teaching Resources

The BBC has worked with the National Literacy Trust to produce these teachers' resources in order to mobilise great comedy writing in the classroom.

On this page you’ll find downloadable classroom resources which include fact sheets on each of the three comedy categories with plenty of writing tips that you can share with your students, and student facing slides. We’ve also provided a comedy toolbox and comedy glossary for you to photocopy and give to students to refer to whilst working on their comedy writing.
