Irony in O. Henry's Gift of the Magi

This Irony in O. Henry's Gift of the Magi lesson plan also includes:

Introduce the 3 types of irony with questions for your class that demonstrate how much we experience it every day. Sort responses into categories for verbal, situational, and dramatic irony. Designed to accompany O. Henry's story The Gift of the Magi, this resource could be applied to myriad stories. I like how this activity takes irony off the page and places it in real life.
