This 10 question satire assessment can be used as either a formative or summative assessment during or at the end of a unit on satire.
The assessment includes a short satirical reading that requires a deep critical understanding of the tone and purpose of satire. Additionally, this assessment will test students' understanding of satirical devices including: verbal irony, sarcasm, mockery, understatement, hyperbole, and parody.
Several questions require students to justify their answers by citing particular lines from the text to support their response.
*I recommend this assessment only be used with students above the age of 16 due to the content of the reading.*
