That’s ironic

When I was a high school English teacher, I was tasked with teaching teenagers how to critique a “text” – to look at some writing and untangle its meaning, plus what techniques an author had used, and why. I enjoyed this part of the job, but it could be challenging. It was tricky, for example, to explain irony. In attempting to teach my students about irony, it’s possible they came away understanding less about irony. Which is in itself a touch ironic. 🤷
