These materials provide an introduction to irony and an analysis of irony in Richard Connell's short story "The Most Dangerous Game". Students will have an opportunity to take notes on the three types of irony and practice analyzing irony using a few fun short videos. After sufficient practice, students will use their new skills to analyze how irony creates suspense in "The Most Dangerous Game". Students will come to see how irony connects to other literary devices to create meaning in a text.
This lesson should be used after students have read the text. A "class notes" answer key is provided with the materials to use as a model. A modified assignment page for IEP/504 students is also provided.
