This lesson details the meaning of irony, including what irony is and what it is not. The Powerpoint includes a series of humorous photos centered around two questions: what is the logical expectation, and how does this outcome deviate from that expectation? Two youtube videos are embedded to provide high interest examples and non-examples. Lyrics to the Alanis Morisette song "Ironic" are provided along with a clever rewrite of the song to clarify the irony of the situations within it. A full step-by-step lesson plan is included. This lesson may take one to two 55 minute class periods depending upon depth of discussion.
