PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This PDF includes an activity designed to help students practice identifying the three different types of irony (Verbal, Dramatic, and Situational). The worksheet provided lists several scenes from the movie Shrek . As the students watch the movie, they are responsible for identifying what type of irony is presented and they are also responsible for providing a brief explanation.

Along with this worksheet, I have also provided a cheat sheet slip that you can pass out to the students to use while they watch the movie. On the sheet, you will find the three different types of irony and a quick way to remember them:

Verbal Irony- Sarcasm

Dramatic Irony- "I know something you don't know!"- (This is just a simple way to remember that dramatic irony is when the audience knows something that a character in the story does not.)

Situational Irony- Not!- (This occurs whenever a situation ends up being different than an audience member would expect.)

The last document included in this PDF is an answer key.

I've had a lot of fun using this particular assignment in my own classroom. It is a great way to incorporate a video and spark students interest. The worksheet only covers the first 45 min or so of the movie, so you do not need to take more than a day to complete this assignment. Furthermore, the headings before each set of questions identifies the chapter (or part of the movie) in which you can find the answer.
