IRONY: a contrast or incongruity between what is stated and what it meant, or between what is expected and what actually happens
This is a complete lesson about irony. The definition of the term is followed by a discussion using excellent examples in poetry. Activity sheets provide questions that promote and ensure understanding, and a writing exercise that provides an opportunity for application.
Includes a teacher guide that discusses literary terms, suggests a lesson cycle, provides NCTE/IRA standards, and includes an answer key.
Irony is excerpted from THE LITERARY TERMS HANDBOOK.
