That's Absurd! Understanding the Use of Satire

Based around the documentary Battlestar Galactica: Propaganda and War, this plan asks learners to create a satirical piece. After a discussion about satire, the class views the documentary and then splits off into pairs to complete the project. Using a worksheet called "That's Absurd: Using Satire to Expose Issues," pairs brainstorm ideas for their piece of satire and choose either a skit, cartoon, political cartoon, or website as their method of delivery.
