Abstract
This study aims to identify the teachers’ willingness to apply humor, media used for humorous practices and teachers’ ability to apply humor as predictive factors in the teaching and learning of Malay language literary components. This study also aims to identify the elements of humor as stimulating students’ affective component in the teaching and learning of Malay language literary components. This study is a combination of quantitative and qualitative studies. The sample selection was carried out by a random sampling method. This study was conducted on 92 Malay language teachers in six secondary schools in the district of Bintulu, Sarawak. Quantitative study results were analyzed using inference statistics involving multiple linear regression, while the qualitative analysis involves observation, documents analysis and interview protocols. The results showed that there were significant differences in terms of the teachers’ willingness to apply humor, media used for humorous practices and teachers’ ability to apply humor as predictive factors in the teaching and learning of Malay language literary components. The results also showed that there are elements of humor as stimulating students’ affective component in the teaching and learning of Malay language literary components. This study has implication for providing a practical model of humor strategy teaching that can serve as a reference to increased professionalism among teachers in upper secondary schools to incorporate the elements of humor in teaching and learning of the Malay language literary components.
