Generalise Skills and Knowledge

Once the person has understood the basic principles of a knock knock joke, they could find other versions in books or online. A good point of discussion is to talk about what they think is funny and tell these jokes to family and friends. The way a person tells a joke is just as important as the words they say, so practise and further support could focus on them developing this skill.
