IRONYis a hard concept to teach. I have developed a series of exercises I use at the beginning of class to help make the "AHA Moment" happen. Here is an example of how I teach IRONY. This activity comes from my sister site
Watch the following video carefully. Write your answer on your index card. Find at LEAST 2 (TWO) examples of IRONY in the short film. Your answer needs to be in complete sentences. Complete sentences, i.e. written with proper grammar, capitalization, punctuation, and with a subject and verb. Again, give 2 (TWO) examples of irony in the video and EXPLAIN why that event was IRONIC.
