PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Irony is a common literary technique but also a powerful one. This presentation provides a clear, easy-to-grasp overview of the three classic types of irony:
-situational irony
-verbal irony
-dramatic irony

Each aspect of irony is explained with clear information and examples. There are also slides for review and application of the concepts.

Finally, there is reference to the O. Henry short story "After Twenty Years." Students have the opportunity to read that story (available free online) and describe the impact of irony in that plot. The ability to read literature and compose an analytical response about its features is an important skill for middle-school students, both academically and on core-content test activities.

This file can be helpful for a whole-class lesson or at a literacy center for individuals or small groups.

This resource is created by Stephen Campbell.
