Thatโ€™s ironic

When I was a high school English teacher, I was tasked with teaching teenagers how to critique a โ€œtextโ€ โ€“ 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, itโ€™s possible they came away understanding less about irony. Which is in itself a touch ironic. ๐Ÿคท
