Teach your students how to identify the different types of irony by watching an episode of The Office!
This question sheet has students analyzing a television episode as a cultural text. Students are analyzing character traits, character choices, character reactions, character connections, and also making predictions based on what they know.
This is a fun, out of the box lesson that students are able to identify with. All of my students were able to understand irony and were excited to discuss the episode. Essentially, by analyzing an episode (the script coupled with the acting) you are doing everything you do when you are analyzing a book!
