This download contains My PowerPoint presentation over the three types of irony and a irony graphic organizer that can be adapted to ANY novel that you are teaching. I sell both of these products individually in my shop, and they would be $6.50 when purchased separately.
Irony Graphic Organizer
This download contains one graphic organizer that gives the students spaces to organize examples of situational irony, verbal irony, and dramatic irony within the texts that they are reading. This organizer can be used for ANY piece of literature! This download also includes student material that defines each type of irony. I like to use these for sub lesson plans. I have also used this assignment as both a group assignment and an individual assignment. It also makes for good material to have a class discussion!
