Today we had our last skating session. It has been great to see the skating improve throughout our time on the ice. If skating is something you really enjoy, check out the programs they have at a local community centre. After skating we spent some time on our Inquiry project. I was especially impressed with how well students ran their knowledge building circles today! Outstanding work Div 1 and 2. Your inquiry skills are improving with each session.
- Irony is defined as: 1. the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning: the irony of her reply, “How nice!” when I said I had to work all weekend.
Someone who talks a lot having nothing to say when asked a question.
A whaling ship being used to save marine animals after a tsunami.
There are three main types of Irony:
- Dramatic irony – This occurs when the reader or audience understands more about the events of a story than a character.
Situational irony – This occurs when what actually happens is the opposite of what is expected or appropriate.
Verbal irony – A character says one thing but really means the opposite.
