PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Teach your students the concept of irony in all its amusing glory—including the three main types—while having them laughing along the way!

This engaging PowerPoint bundle includes:

• Thought-provoking Journal Prompts—to activate students’ knowledge about irony and ironic situations

• Irony Definitions and Examples—funny, memorable, real-life examples of all three types of irony to help students understand and appreciate a difficult concept. Includes photos, links to videos and examples from language and literature.

• Review Activities—an entire section devoted to having students assess their learning by identifying the types of irony presented through additional amusing examples

• Close Reading Activity with “The Open Window”—students closely read Saki’s classic short story, identifying the best examples of irony and their types. Can be used in tandem with
“The Open Window”—Irony and Close Reading Unit that includes a copy of the story along with a detailed lesson plan, additional activities, and plenty of handouts that correspond with the activities in this product.

• Fun, Creative Follow-up Activities—a variety of activities to help students deepen their learning, including: “Most Ironic Name” dog-naming contest, a “find-and-improve-the-irony” activity (offered free on TPT) using Alanis Morissette’s 1995 highly-criticized-for-its-misuse-of-irony classic song, and an irony skit activity in which students write and perform their own interpretations of all three types of irony.

• Irony Skit Rubric—so that students understand the goals and expectations of the assignment, and grading is a breeze!

PLUS the presentation is provided as both a FULLY EDITABLE PowerPoint AND a PDF, just in case you encounter any technical or compatibility issues.
