Excellent lesson plan! The idea of using Teen Wolf to provide students with different forms of irony will certainly engage them.  Seeing Michael J. Fox in his younger years should be an interesting topic for your students.  I really like the idea of allowing the students to choose the format for how they present the different types of irony.  I imagine that this is a fun lesson for you assess as they present their ironic examples.  Well done!

Author’s decision to motivate students through the use of choice in product creation and ability to collaborate with peers promotes a positive learning environment. Instructional objectives are clearly stated and include higher order thinking skills. Including these types of skills helps students develop a deeper understanding of the topic being covered. Lesson addresses a variety of learning styles including visual, kinesthetic, and auditory in providing examples, lesson delivery, and choice of student product to create. I also think showing movie clips to activate and connect to student’s prior knowledge is an excellent idea. Providing students the opportunity to collaborate with their peers is engaging and should help facilitate creativity in their final products. It would be nice to see the web-based tools serve a more central role in the assignment. For example, have students brainstorm their ideas in Google Docs, create a rough sketch of their presentation in Google presentation, and finally use a recording device to capture and share their final project with the class. I also think it would be very beneficial to include a rubric or guideline sheet for students to follow as they are completing this assignment. Overall, this lesson is a very engaging and creative way for students to demonstrate their understanding of the 3 types of irony in literature.
