This is an activity that I use every year as a refresher before I introduce my students to writing their first literary analysis. I also use it as a pre-reading activity for "Gift of the Magi" because it is so heavy with irony. Great refresher/intro to irony!
Part 1- Read and discuss the article defining "Irony in Literature"
