O. Henry’s short story “The Ransom of Red Chief” is a wonderful choice for your students. It is one of the best stories to help you teach the three different types of irony and illustrates how irony creates humorous moments. In this document, you will find a student handout defining irony, twenty-eight close-reading questions with an answer key, and a twenty-question reading assessment with a variety of question formats (multiple choice, true/false, matching, and short answer) and a key.
