This assignment directs the students to look for irony within Khaled Hosseini's The Kite Runner.. The students are tasked with identifying examples of dramatic irony, situational irony, and verbal irony within the story. The directions provide a detailed example. Pages reviewing the definitions of irony have also been included.
I have used this assignment as both an individual assignment and a group assignment. It makes for excellent class discussions over the topic of irony and the material presented in the text.
