So how does that help
So how does that help?

  • With your partner, write a definition for satire. Make sure you include more than just writing or video. Think about all that satire can include…


Satire is
Satire is…

  • Satire is a genre of literature, and sometimes graphic and performing arts, in which vices, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, corporations, government or society itself, into improvement.Although satire is usually meant to be humorous, its greater purpose is often constructive social criticism, using wit as a weapon and as a tool to draw attention to both particular and wider issues in society.

  • A feature of satire is strong irony or sarcasm—"in satire, irony is militant"—but parody, exaggeration,comparison, analogy, and double entendre are all frequently used in satirical speech and writing.

  • Satire is nowadays found in many artistic forms of expression, including literature, plays, commentary, television shows, and media such as lyrics.

Now try writing some questions
Now try writing some questions…

  • When we write questions that have to go with the works we read we use a set of standards and try to ‘align’ our Qs…

  • With your partner, write two questions based on this passage that go with each of the following standards…


Two questions for each
TWO questions for each…

  • Draw a conclusion based on what the text says (use the text as evidence(QUOTES!))

  • Making inferences (decisions) when the text leaves something uncertain.

  • Determine the theme(s) of a text and HOW the text shows it.
