This assignment directs the students to look for irony within Leslie Marmon Silko's Ceremony. The students are tasked with identifying examples of dramatic irony, situational irony, and verbal irony within the story. The directions provide a detailed example.
I have used this assignment as both an individual assignment and a group assignment. The assignment provides a great discussion over the different types of irony and how to identify them in a text.
