In this 1-hour crash course, students will learn the differences between irony, sarcasm, and satire. Furthermore, they will be able to identify the three main types of irony: verbal, situational, and dramatic. Examples in the form of cartoons, pictures, graffiti, and brief literary excerpts will be provided to give students ample practice with identification.

There will be no homework for this class.
The class will be discussion based. The teacher will first provide examples on the different types of irony. Later, students will be given additional examples where they will have to explain why the image or text is ironic. While all students are encouraged to participate, shy students who prefer not to speak up can still silently gauge their understanding as we progress through the various examples. Students may ask questions throughout the class to enhance their comprehension.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
While the class is by no means political, it does reference current events in America. The use of political cartoons, satirical news sources, and contemporary movie references are necessary in order to give students authentic examples of how irony is used in everyday life. We will not be taking sides on any given topic, but rather analyzing how the image or text is using irony.
