Product Description

Though crucial for the study of literature, irony can be a very confusing concept to students. Analyzing situational irony in literature forces students to think on a higher level. But first students must know what irony actually is. This activity makes students familiar and comfortable with the concept of irony through a series of exercises. Rather than giving students a standard definition of irony, this activity challenges students to come up with their own definition of irony based on 8 clear examples of irony. Then, they are given a list of 7 examples & non-examples where they must distinguish between ironic and merely coincidental events. Next, students are given a list of 6 ironic events in history and must explain what is ironic about the events. The activity concludes with an Exit Ticket that requires students to analyze the situational irony in a brief, understandable poem.
