Abstract

Several studies reveal that satire is popular among young audiences, making it a potential didactic tool for in-classroom discussions; however, satire criticized for making jokes that only resonate with those already familiar with the topic (Flanagan, 2017). The current work describes best practices for using satire in the classroom to discuss issues of representation and diversity in media by presenting rhetorical and pedagogical tactics that provide students insight into issues of marginalization with respect to class, gender, and race.
