Product Description
It's so ironic that kids can't grasp the irony!

This presentation consists of 19 slides with 30+ graphics and 5 embedded videos.

It begins with a definition of irony then continues with distinctions among
---situational, and
---dramatic irony.

For each type of irony there are
---real world examples and
---examples from literature:

-----Verbal—Julius Caesar (with an embedded video of Antony’s funeral speech by Charlton Heston)—Additionally, a clip from Monty Python’s Holy Grail where Arthur battles the Black Knight who merely suffers a few “flesh wounds.”

-----Dramatic—Animal Farm (with an embedded video of the movie trail for kids unfamiliar with the novel). Additionally, a clip from Snow White where the stepmother poisons the apple, a reminder that the reader or audience knows the apple is poisoned, but Snow does not.

-----Situational-The Gift of the Magi and a reference to Fahrenheit 451, a book about banning books, being banned. Additionally, a clip from the F451 movie about books “making people sad” (Imagine!)

Following the discussion and illustrations of the types of irony are
3 slides depicting irony.

---The first is various ironic signs found in the real world,
---the second is school-related such as announcements congradulting the spelling bee winners, and
---the last photos that portray irony such as a truck with flame graphics gone up in real flames.

These are funny.

Kids respond well and are quite pleased when they can recognize the irony.

I include one slide listing my sources.

Attractive format, clear font.
