Introduction to Sarcasm (Movie)


"I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.” - Groucho Marx

“The problem with common sense is that most people are morons.” - The Sarcasm Society

Sarcasm can be witty, but in the school environment it can be hurting. Teach your students to recognise sarcasm and to be careful with its use.

This is a great introductory Full Quality narrated slidedeck that introduces the topic of sarcasm. The slidedeck includes:

- samples from Groucho Marx,

- how sarcasm can hurt others,

- some samples for students to test their sarcasm detector, and

- some examples for sarcastic body language.

The slide presentation can be used with the worksheets which are available from Yeah Right! Sarcasm

It is part of an ongoing humour series which also includes:

Clowns and Slapstick

All About Satire

That's Very Punny

Teachers could also get all four packs for the price of only three by investing in the entire Comedy Fun Bundle
