Product Description
The purpose of this resource is to identify when sarcasm is being used by a conversational partner, and also recognize when to use it appropriately based on the situation.

First, students learn to utilize the included checklist to determine if the words of a speaker in a social situation match various criterion (such as situational/conversational context, facial expression, etc) and therefore, if sarcasm is present or not. There is a mini-lesson, example, and 20 practice pages with real photographs. I have also included audio clips of myself reading the descriptions of the pictures to help students listen to the tone of voice (M4A files that can be played on iTunes or Windows Media Player). Alternatively, a peer, teacher, or therapist could also read this part, if desired.

Next, students review a list of Dos and Don'ts to help in deciding when is an appropriate time to use sarcasm themselves. There is also an example, and 20 practice pages with real photographs.

Each page in the resource comes in both color (for teletherapy or an iPad) AND greyscale for easy printing.
